Painted Ladies of Louisiana and Going Up Two Pant Sizes in Lafayette - Sunflower Paintings by Nancy Medina

 Painted Ladies of Louisiana With Sunflowers

Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

I got a phone call from blogger yesterday asking where I've been the past few days. I had such a fun time painting flowers with the talented ladies of Lafayette, Louisiana, and eating large portions every night of crab etouffe, shrimp gumbo and roasted oysters with parmesan dribbled generously in butter that I completely lost track of time. By Day 2, none of the pants I had packed in my suitcase fit anymore. My fingers were no longer able to type anything discernible on my laptop keyboard with the exception of "Siri, find directions to the nearest Cajun Restaurant...PRONTO!" I'm a firm believer, however, that if you're going to indulge, do it with something absolutely yummy, and I have never found a bad restaurant in Louisiana. Had I planned better, I would have anticipated this before departure, and packed something with an elastic waistband....

What a delightful, talented bunch of ladies in Lafayette. Here are some photos of their paintings below. Stay tuned, I've got more to share, and if you're very, very good, maybe even a new french saying or two!

 I put a mardi gras hat on my little orange....

 Jennifer's white hydrangeas were so dreamy!

 Laurie rocked that glass vase!

 Smiling ladies, hydrangea paintings, sunflowers, what more could one need?

Vaughan's beautiful shadows in acrylic!
