SOLD ~ Day 29 ~ Apples and Hydrangeas and a Tennessee Workshop by Nancy Medina

 Apples and Hydrangeas

Oil on Archival Panel


Apples and Hydrangeas was my class demonstration this morning, the final day of my workshop in Collerville, Tennessee.  I had a class full of talented artists, and they created sunflowers, blue hydrangeas, and white roses in our afternoon paint-along sessions. Fueled by gourmet donuts and plenty of snacks and coffee, we learned that the teacher sometimes calls apples roses and yellow green, so one must keep a careful eye on that wacky lady. Next stop for this teacher, Florida! Sunshine and alligators, here I come!

This is the 29th painting in 29 days, as the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge is drawing to a close. Did I manage to paint something every day? Yes! *confetti* Tomorrow will be another challenge, since I fly home to Dallas. Let's see if I have the energy to keep up the momentum another day - stay tuned, there may be a pug picture in it for you...!

Sandy and her beautiful hydrangeas!

The models take a bow!

Beautiful painting but I am absolutely drooling over that Georgia ginger jar style vase! Glad you are heading home for some much needed Pug and Hubby time!

Laura Leeder said...

I agree! All your paintings are beautiful, but that ginger jar is particularly compelling!

Sherry, my friend Carolyn had a whole set of these beautiful jars - what a treat to be able to use one of her treasures in my painting!

Thanks so much Laura! I appreciate your kind words!
