Day 11 ~ Unseasonable Sunflowers, a Marble Falls Demo and a New Giveaway by Floral Arist Nancy Medina

Unseasonable Sunflowers and Lilies

Oil on Archival Panel

Unseasonable Sunflowers and Lilies was my demonstration painting this morning for the Mid-Cities Fine Artists of Texas and is number 11 in the 30 in 30 Challenge sponsored by the amazing Leslie Saeta! Be sure to pay a visit to Leslie's blog, Slices of Life, to see her beautiful palette knife work!

We had such a great meeting today with the Mid-Cities artists, and voted on the artist of the year for the club. Talk about a room full of talent! This afternoon with 90 degree heat and blazing sunshine out my studio window, I heard the loudest rumble of thunder. A few minutes later, a torrential rain came pouring down! Little Hannah, our adopted pug, is terrified of storms, so I put the brushes aside and held her until the unseasonable weather passed. Even Hannah seemed happy, though, when we stepped outside later to the cool, wet air. It was like a little blessing, unexpected and so welcome, in the middle of the day.

Tomorrow I'll be giving away the second of five works of art during the 30 Day Challenge. 

My next demonstration will be next week for the Highland Arts Guild in Marble Falls, Texas, on November 19 at 9:30 am. If you are in Central Texas I would be absolutely delighted to meet you so come on down and say howdy! Read more...

The studio models take a bow!

Bonjour chère amie,

Je respire des yeux ! Je ne pense pas que cela se dise ! Peu importe !...
Ce bouquet est tout simplement majestueux... Les couleurs dansent judicieusement autour de ce vase aux nuances bleues.
Je suis heureuse de constater que ton choix fut excellent d'avoir choisi cette voie professionnelle. Tu respires le bonheur ! cela se voit dans ta peinture.
Pardon, je ne veux pas te froisser en te tutoyant,simplement te témoigner mon amicale affection.
Gros bisous

Merci beaucoup Martine, je suis si contente que vous pouvez voir mon bonheur dans mon travail, je suis très chanceux d'être capable de travailler en tant qu'artiste pour vivre dans un pays où d'autres types de carrières sont beaucoup plus vénéré, l'enseignement et peinture sont mon bonheur, et je vous envoie beaucoup d'affection pour vous à travers le monde! étreintes, Nancy

Sherry she is a little precious girl, I have to make sure she is never afraid again, I can only imagine what the first years of her life were like before we adopted her. I hope there was someone to hold her during the storms.
