Shining Through Sunflowers and a New Louisiana Workshop - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina


Shining Through Sunflowers and Lilacs
by Nancy Medina

Class Demonstration
Oil on Deep Gallery Wrap Canvas
Shining Through Sunflowers was my class demonstration this morning in Flower Mound Studio. We had an exciting day, hosting a student who flew down from Delaware for a private lesson. The pugs especially were delighted with Judith's visit, since this lovely lady has a bulldog and spent a great deal of time lavishing affection and words of praise and adoration upon my little snuffle nosed helpers.

My new instructional DVD arrived in a big ole box yesterday, and among dozens of orders that came in today, I got some great questions I thought I'd answer for you here - yes there are more DVDs coming, including lessons on daisies, sunflowers and ranunculus. This is a real DVD, not an online video, so you can hold the very colorful case and take it with you on trips or keep it with you wherever you wish to take it. The case is pretty, with lots of colors, and comes wrapped in clear plastic and looks so darn professional I think I may have to start referring to myself as Missuz Medina Who Has a DVD. My Mother may possibly also be very impressed, but I won't know until I show the DVD to her tomorrow. I'll let be sure to report back to you promptly with her response. It should be interesting, knowing my Mom...

On another exciting note, I'm delighted to announce registration has opened for my Shreveport, Louisiana workshop! If you think Texas has a lot of talented artists, I highly recommend you take a peek at the talent pool in Louisiana, too. It is striking how many accomplished painters these two states have between them. My next goal is to join some of these ladies for their plein air outings in an effort to become as immune to the heat in the name of chasing the light, and art in its truest form. Stay tuned for that journey to come! (Now that it's 100 degrees out each day, it might be a few months, but stay tuned...!) After all, good things come to those who (sweat) wait!
