This is the hill country scene that Carla wanted with the addition of a few Blue bonnets. I am so happy with it that I plan a new series of Bluebonnet paintings! So thankyou Carla! But before I do that I have another painting in mind. Have been wanting to do a real San Antonio type thing and also feeling the pull to do a face. So next will be a mexican folk dancer but just the side of the face and concentrating on the beautiful flowers in the hair and a background of the mexican paper cut outs that are strung up especailly at Fiesta. This will be a bigger piece so I will do some drawings and post them first.

Here is another painting for Carla. I think it sparkles even more than the original. Had a fabulous day last week at Jamie Maverick's cute little cottage in Fredricksberg. Every year Jamie invites some of her artist friends to come have lunch and bring their paints for a day of friendship and art. I did a drawing of her front window and gave it to her as a thankyou. I'll get a photo of it framed up later. We all drove over to see the new gallery that just opened up there in Fredricksberg called the Insight Gallery. It was wonderful--beautiful space and really excellent nationally known artists. Be sure to stop by and see when you are next in Fredricksberg.
