Gold Beets

Gold Beets    oil on canvas, 11x 14....................................................................$275
 It's been over a year since I've posted art on STALTP. I apologize in advance for not knowing the October theme. However, it is great to be back. Settled in Temple Texas, with a home studio I can hardly wait to break in!

Recently, at the grocery store I picked up these gold beets and was smitten with the color. Not a beet fan, I had no plans to eat but simply to paint them. I enjoyed every minute and think they make for delicious art! The following day after googling recipes, I decided to roast them, finely chopped, tossed with olive oil, with a little salt and pepper for 25 minutes at 400. Boy, was I in for a nice surprise!

I hope you are all well and enjoying the cooler weather.

Happy fall y'all!

Pansy Pair and a Texas Hill Country Workshop by Flower Artist Nancy Medina

 Pansy Pair by Nancy Medina
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

As soon as I finished unpacking from Denver, it's time to start packing again for my next workshop in Fredericksburg, Texas, October 26, 27 and 28. I'm tickled pink to have found a new treasure while in the gift store of the Denver Botanical Gardens, this lovely little blue pitcher. I may have to bubble wrap it with loving care for the trip to my Hill Country workshop!

You are cordially invited to join me in historic Fredericksburg, Texas, amidst rolling hills, cabins, beautiful vistas, and awesome German bakeries for a three-day flower painting workshop retreat!
