Holiday Pink Peonies and Amazing Things We Learned in Class Today - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina

Holiday Pink Peonies

Class Demonstration
Oil on Linen Panel

Holiday Pink Peonies was one of my class demonstrations in North Texas today. Tomorrow we paint French landscapes - oo la la! I can hardly wait, since this also happens to be my end of year party, everyone in class is going to get a big surprise! The handsome Frenchman has agreed to come to serve us lunch. I'm going to be sure he wears a beret, too, whether he likes it or not! (he is my husband, do you think anyone will notice he is Hispanic rather than French?) Here are a few important things we learned in class today:

  • Eating eight mini cupcakes is equal to less than half of one traditional sized cupcake
  • When teacher eats 8 cupcakes in class, everyone agrees NOT to tell teacher's husband
  • Women need the thermostat set at a balmy 50 degrees year-round please and thank you
  • If you proclaim you NEVER win anything, the WINNER sticker will be on the bottom of your chair

Thanks to Mother Nature (and the market) for giving us these fresh flowers today!
