Tiptoe Through the Tulips - still life by Debbie Grayson Lincoln

16 X 16 Oil on Canvas
Check with artist for availability
I don't attend many painting workshops, and when I do, it's usually with artists that like to paint the same subject matter that I enjoy painting. I have known Nancy Medina since we both started painting daily nearly 10 years ago. She paints floral sill lifes that fairly explode off the canvas with color. She recently offered an on-line painting workshop to share her "secrets" and skills. The advantage of this is that I can "paint with Nancy" any time I wish, since all the lessons are pre-recorded and available at any time over the course of the next 12 months.
This painting is the result of "Lesson 1" and I learned quite a lot - and all of it I can apply to my western paintings!  Tomorrow I will post two little paintings of a mule - one that I painted last year and one that I just completed after my first lesson. I can tell a difference...see if you can, too!
This has been an excellent time for me to be staying in the studio. It is beastly hot in Texas, the cows and their calves are grazing at night and staying in the shade during the day, and most of Texas is in the old familiar "praying for rain survival" mode.  It was 104 today. The only veggies left to pick in the garden are some unhappy, split tomatoes, bushels of butternut squash, and soy beans (edamame). One lone late blooming peach tree that escaped the last spring frost is delighting me every morning with a half dozen peaches which I eat right off the tree while watching the horses and cows. There are a few pleasures reserved for July in Texas....
We have escaped like a bird from the fowler’s snare; the snare has been broken, and we have escaped.
