Day 6, Tuscany Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

On the next day of our Tuscany Art Trek, we hit the ground running by spending a full day in Florence. Visiting the Uffizi and Academy Museums with their incredible collections of Renaissance art, the impressive marble Duomo and famous Bronze Baptistry doors, wandering the cobble stone streets and admiring the stone architecture, fountains and sculptures, and allowing extra time for shopping.

We ended the day with you guessed it – another delicious meal! Then we wandered back through the romantic golden-lit streets to see the beautiful view of the Ponte Vecchio over the Arno at night.

Empty Nest Waiting by Kay Wyne


Empty Nest Waiting
8" x 16" Oil on Canvas
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
Empty Nest Waiting is framed up and hanging at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas.  I used a wide brush and my palette knife to create this contemporary nest painting. You can see the wide brushstrokes in the background...I didn't get fussy with it.  I painted it, and left the paint so that the brush strokes were visible.  The sticks and twigs of the nest are thick and textured.  Thanks for looking at this blog.....Kay

French Market Flower Quest and a Sonoma Workshop - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina

 French Market Flower Quest
by Nancy Medina
14X14
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas



 French Market Flower Quest is the daily newbie in Flower Mound Studio, I needed a color burst to balance "real life" today - I attended my first jury duty calling. I was quite nervous, which seems odd, considering my mother worked in the district clerk's office for almost 20 years. Something about the thought of being asked my name and my job by a judge with the power to send me to jail had me all in a tizzy. But I must say, it made me reflect on something rather profound - I was about to say, under oath, the following words:

I am an artist


How wonderful is that? There is something life affirming, color affirming, art journey affirming, about that moment under oath. The truth, your honor, and nothing but the truth. What happened? Read more....

Day 5, Tuscany Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

After a busy day in Siena, we took it easy the next day staying closer to home base. While some painted the beautiful view of Pienza from our villa in the morning, the photographers and sightseers visited more of the nearby hill towns. We relaxed that afternoon and went for a delicious meal in town that night. A rejuvenating day!

 Purple Flash Sunflowers

Shed your winter coats and join me

in January in Orlando, Florida! 

Click here for the scoop!






Purple Flash Sunflowers is the newest daily in Flower Mound Studio, and, as promised, here are some images from my workshop in San Diego, California, last week. While it was snowing in Dallas, we were shedding jackets and scarves in sunny Southern California.

On Friday, my students and I took a tour of Balboa Park, one of the most famous places to visit in California. Even this late in the year, I was excited to see so many flowers were in bloom. Rain is desperately needed in Southern Cali right now, so think good thoughts for Mother Nature to give these gardens a drink. Grab your flip flops and visit my blog for the flower photo tour!

Visiting Siena Italy with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams on their Tuscany Art Trek

"Wishing Well," Siena ©2014 Niki Gulley • 7" x 5" oil painting 
Day 4, Tuscany Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

On the fourth day of our Tuscany Art Trek, we headed to the Medieval hill town of Siena, with its incredible marble Duomo, great people-watching plaza, and interesting alleyways radiating out from the campo with something new to discover around every turn. While some of our group shopped, some photographed and others relaxed on the square, I set up in one of the quiet cobble streets to capture the textures of their ancient walls and this unique old well. For dinner that night, we treated ourselves to a delicious dinner of Tuscan pizza, fresh local vegetables and of course, some amazing wines!

Blooming Radishes and Hydrangeas and an International Art Affair - Nancy Medina Art Workshops

http://nancymedina.fineartstudioonline.com/workszoom/1611650

 California Blooming
Radishes and Hydrangeas
by Nancy Medina

Class Demonstration

20X16
Oil on Archival Panel




 California Blooming Radishes and Hydrangeas was my class demonstration in historic Balboa Park this weekend. I was tickled pink to find the roses were in bloom on Coronado Island, when we visited my favorite cottage garden there after class. This talented group of painters included the largest collection of international students I've ever had in a class. The traveled furthest award went to six students from Singapore, Australia, and Canada, though one of the ladies from Orange County California was pretty certain her commute that morning took longer than a flight from Sydney. We also had painters from Michigan, Alabama, Arizona, New York, Idaho, and across California swinging brushes and making bright color happen. My next California workshop is going to be in....*sound of harps* Sonoma, California! That spring class in one of the most beautiful wine destinations in the US is filling fast so don't delay, I'm reserving a grape with your name on it mon cher! Read more...
