Sunflowers and Clematis and a Workshop Treat by Floral Artist Nancy Medina

Oil on Archival Panel

Sunflowers and Clematis was my morning demonstration today for my workshop in Lees Summit, Missouri. I was absolutely delighted to be able to use this beautiful vase belonging to the workshop hostess, Connie, whom I suspect is a cousin to Martha Stewart, considering Connie's amazing lunch spread replete with key lime pie for dessert garnished with fresh strawberries! What a perfect day painting with lovely gals from around the region, and what an awesome vase color for bright, cheery sunflowers to perch within! I suspect I am about to engage upon a quest for this pot's twin, either on Ebay or at the HomeGoods store. Tomorrow morning, I'll be painting the largest class demo I have ever completed. Stay tuned to see if I can fill up a Big Ole canvas in under 4 hours!

The studio models take a dip and a bow!

I too was thinking that this is one gorgeous vase! The flowers are always a joy!

I am so excited that you are now in Missouri. I am signed up for the St. Louis class and these photos are inspiring me. Can't wait to meet you!
