Blueberry Fields Forever and Using a Lavish Brush - Floral Paintings by Nancy Medina

Blueberry Fields Forever
by Nancy Medina
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Commissioned Work


Blueberry Fields Forever shall soon be traveling to a new home in Iowa for a lovely lady who wished for a memento of Texas. I spread the paint thickly, and pulled all the crayons out of the box for this one, as my muse/friend Martha likes to say. In begin all of my paintings with thin transparent paint, ending with thick, fat strokes of pure color. What a joyful task it is, this gradual and strategic construction of powerful pigment. You can see how this occurs, step by step, in my new video.

If you have a talent, use it in every which way possible. Don't hoard it. Don't dole it out like a miser. Spend it lavishly, like a millionaire intent on going broke ~ Brenda Francis
