The Chosen, Flower Market Day by Texas Artist Nancy Medina

The Chosen, Flower Market by Nancy Medina


Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

Daily Painters Gallery
Nancy Medina Web Site

The Chosen is a departure from my usual paintings. I began drawing women in dresses and ballgowns in the fourth grade, when my dream of being a fashion designer first began. My first year of college that notion was dispelled when I learned I had to embrace home furnishings in the mix, and learn how to tell a Louis the XIV chair from a chaise lounge. This was a fun painting, and I drew on my watercolor background to lay in a nice soft background, reminiscent of the flowers of the Dallas Arboretum.

Early Morning in the Garden

Early Morning in the Garden
8 x 10
oil on linen board
Our theme this month is hats, so you are probably wondering where the hat is. The answer is I'm wearing it, as I alwys do when painting in plein air. The Fort Worth Botanic Gardens are one of my very favorite places to paint in any season.

Smiling Sam by Carol Morgan

This is one of my early portraits of Sam McMahon. He is still smiling but is 4 years old wearing a Batman shirt, coozies on his wrists and a towel pinned to his shirt! He won't hold still long enough for me to snap his photo!!

Small Hat Painting by Kay Wyne

This little 6" x 8" oil is on a Raymar cotton panel. I was digging through some of my husband's stuff and found his wool YMCA baseball cap and baseball from years ago. Maybe this painting will bring back some memories for you as you look at it. It was a fun little piece to do....although I seem to enjoy painting on large canvases. Thanks for viewing this blog, and have an artful day! Kay

Sunbathing Boy by Carol Morgan

This little guy was sunning for the first time and his Nanny put this cute hat on this precious baby. He just looked so content sitting there like a little Buddah !! He is definitely a waterbaby. Well now he is 3 or 4 years old and I bet he still loves the water. I know his momma loved the painting.

"Santa Fe Vendor" by Ann Rogers

8 x 10 oil

Painted this "portrait" from a photo that I snapped of a vendor at the open air market in Santa Fe near the train depot. Can't be in the Southwest without seeing some great looking hats.

Cowboy Up by Kay Wyne

Cowboy Up is a 24" x 24" oil on gallery wrap canvas. This painting was inspired by a trip to a horse show in Gainesville, Texas that my nephew, Casey Settles was in. He was getting his chaps on getting ready to ride. I liked the clean lines in his hat. I gave him the painting, and it is now hanging in my sister's home in Illinois. Thanks for viewing this blog!
