Spring is finally here, and in Texas, that means wild flowers. Specifically, that means bluebonnets. The state flower transforms ordinary roadside fields into brilliant blankets of rich blue and violet hues. Here three trees stand on a patch of green island amidst a virtual sea of blue. 

This is was painted alla prima in just about two hours. There's lots of juicy impasto paint, particular in the bluebonnets.

  1. This is beautiful! It reminds me of Texas' beautiful surroundings. I wish I can also create my own interpretation of my favorite places in Texas.
