Bluebonnet and Paintbrush Meadow

"Bluebonnet and Paintbrush Meadow"....appx. 21 x 26 ...ORIGINAL watercolor FRAMED...$300 including shipping if you are first to ask!
The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is my favorite attraction in Austin. Since their earliest days, 25 years ago, I have been active there, showing art and supporting their events.
I frequently paint there, (these days in oils). But I got my start at The Wildflower Center painting wildflowers in great detailed watercolors. I even have a personal letter from Mrs. Lady Bird Johnson, complementing me on my primrose painting (I will BLOG that painting in a few days). It is a cherished memento, along with photos of her with me and my children. She was a VERY nice, warm and gracious lady who I was pleased to meet a number of times.
The painting above is one of these fine originals that needs a good home as I make room in my new studio.
