Bluebonnet 2

"Bluebonnet 2"...6 x 6 oil on canvas panel....a great companion piece with yesterday's!...$100
I have always felt a close connection with bluebonnets...they always bloom on my birthday (April 8) and so I still get that thrill like a little kid when they bloom. This will not be a good year for the blankets of bluebonnets we usually get in our nearby fields...The rains have to come at just the right time in fall and winter. This past year was too dry....but those seeds are THERE and the very next time conditions are right they WILL pop out all over the place.
These came from a neighbor's yard....I had fun working with lots of paint on these!
