Pink Blush Tulips, a New DVD, and a Radio Interview - Flower Painting Classes and Workshops by Nancy Medina Art

Pink Blush Tulips 
by Nancy Medina
16X16
Oil on Deep Gallery Wrap Canvas








I was feeling quite blue about missing the tulip fest at the Dallas Arboretum this spring, when I stumbled upon a bouquet of big pink tulips at the flower market today. I could hardly wait to get them home and put them under the spotlight! Pink Blush Tulips celebrates all my favorite spring colors, with a mix of warm peach and pink spring hues.

The real prize at the market was a bundle of peonies - cross your fingers, toes and flower petals that the peonies will fluff open in the next day or two and be ready to pose for a painting! If I get really lucky, they'll hold up for my next DVD filming coming up very soon. (Stay tuned for more details on the new video lesson coming up soon...)

My first radio interview aired a few days ago, for Artists Helping Artists on Blog Talk Radio. Awesome hostesses Margaret Sheldon and Leslie Saeta put me right at ease. You can hear the whole interview, even if you missed the event, since it's all on the streaming thingy ma bob system. Break out the popcorn and enjoy!

New Lavender Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley




"Waves of Lavender" ©2015 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 24" x 12" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas


Just Sold through the Good Art Company Gallery! The lavender fields in Provence are incredible – perfectly manicured rows and rows of an explosion of violet as far as the eye can see. I wanted to try something different in this painting, arranging the purple waves vertically to draw your eye up to the cypress atop one of the distant hill towns and adding an uplifting feeling to the scene. Wispy clouds mirror similar shapes to the lavender columns and create a harmony between foreground and background, while perspective lines all converge at the summit, leading you to this joyful, peaceful spot.

Jimmy Longacre_subjective realist landscape paintings_ EASY ON THE EYES


Overcast days is what we're having in the Texas Hill Country. A friend of mine enjoys them because they don't trigger her chronic migraines. They can be another kind of headache for painters. 

This one was interpreted from Willow Creek.  When the sun is shining compositions are driven by the contrasting shapes of light and shade.  I have to admit, that's where my preference lies, however due to the prevailing cloudy days, I've been practicing interpreting those circumstances.  For cloudy day paintings, we usually need to find shape contrasts in the local coloration of the elements in the scene.  Not only is the compositional problem different, but the mood is usually quite different as well.

New Aspen Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley




"Reaching for the Heavens II" ©2015 Niki Gulley
40" x 30" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas


In this painting, I wanted you to you to experience the joy of looking up into the treetops – just like you did when you were a kid. Lying on the ground, not a care in the world, you gaze in wonderment as the clouds drift by. Choosing playful colors and thick chunky staccato strokes add to that childlike whimsy and I hope you are transported back to a happy, carefree time and place.

Blog Talk Radio and Hydrangea Queens in New Orleans - Flower Painting Classes and Workshops by Nancy Medina Art



Sugar Queen Hydrangeas ~ Class Demonstration
by Nancy Medina
20X20
Oil on Deep Gallery Wrap Canvas






No sooner had I unpacked from my back to back workshops in Nashville and New Orleans, and it was time to prep for my Blog Talk Radio Show interview for Artists Helping Artists.


I'm so nervous! What if I forget my name? Worse yet, what if I forget the studio helpers' names?

Leslie Saeta and Margaret Sheldon, the hostesses, assure me it's just a chat between friends, nothing to be concerned about. Nevertheless, my motto is: It's best to be over prepared. I've glued post-it notes all over my computer and begun gargling with salt water. I've included essential information, too, like my name, blue and yellow makes green, all those little things that slip my 50-plus year old mind. Read more....
