Devine Bluebonnets 11"x14" $325.00 SOLD

Bluebonnets are in bloom in Texas! We spent an afternoon driving along Hwy 35 around Lytle and Devine taking photos. Some of the Indian Paint Brush was so vivid it simply looked unreal. We got off the freeway briefly to see if there were wildflowers in these small towns but no--seems that Lady Bird Johnson only seeded the freeways. Anyway this is my first attempt at a Texas staple--the Bluebonnet painting. The Bluebonnets are often sprinkled with red, yellow and white flowers and this is the popourri of wildflowers I was attempting to depict.
