Barbed Wire and Bluebonnets 8"x10" $125.00

Can't get more Texas than Barbed Wire and Bluebonnets! When I decided to try some bluebonnet paintings I wanted to try some different perspectives than the usuual field of bluebonnets. This painting is really more about the tree than anything else. The Live Oaks that we have in Texas are almost oriental looking to me. I love the unexpected twists those limbs take.

Looks like I may be teaching a workshop at the Huntsville Art League maybe in August. I guess I'll just show my process--how I convert a snapshot into a painting--no secret to it-just alot of looking and editing.
