Southern Kitchen Sunflower and a Louisiana Workshop and What Happens in the Cloud Stays in the Cloud by Floral Artist Nancy Medina

Southern Kitchen Sunflower is the daily newbie in Flower Mound Studio, as I work on a four foot  Dallas Arboretum cherry blossom tree commission.  A visit to the arboretum means returning home with 600 new photos to add to the Cloud from my IPad. I'm not sure what happens up there in the Cloud, exactly, and occasionally I like to take a peek just to make sure the Cloud has not dissipated. I've heard ugly rumors that if you fill up the Cloud, you get a bill, or a request for money, lest the Cloud take your treasured photos and disappear. I'm not quite sure how one puts borders and limits on a cloud, since it is a nebulous substance mother nature contracts and expands at will to accommodate moisture content in the atmosphere. But I digress!

I'm excited to announce my first ever workshop in Louisiana! You are invited to join me in Lafayette March 21-23, 2014, to make brilliant flowers bloom in oils. I'll teach a loose, bright technique in this fun, 3 day workshop and share all my favorite tips and techniques to make your paintings sing with color. I hope to see you there!

Thanks Sherry, the trees at the Dallas Arboretum are amazing when they're in full bloom, it's like snow everywhere from the white blossoms falling!
