Starry, Starry Night and a French Workshop - Hollyhocks and Lavender - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina


Lavender Fields of France

Oil on Archival Panel

My new DVD

Today we explored the grounds of Le Vieux Couvent and the surrounding hillside cottages in this charming French village. The stars in the night sky here are so bright, they can singe your eyelashes and prick your skin. At midnight, he darkness in the Lot Valley of Southern France is so absolute, so quiet, it feels like cool silk.

Everywhere you turn is another amazing scene, and I confess I've been utterly seduced by the geraniums, pink hollyhocks and stone courtyards. Tomorrow we visit an outdoor market and then explore some historic churches in surrounding villages. Stay tuned, I'll be sharing more pictures with you of my art journey soon.
