Blue Place

Blue Place__6x8 oil on linen panel__$190 wet paint! click blog image to see the details.
One of the first places we drove by on E's secret road was this little old place, surrounded by bluebonnets! It reminded me of a story I heard about some folks who REMOVED a building like this from their property, after well over 50 years! In that long time period, the ground had been moved and tilled and disturbed, but the year after removing the house, a great batch of bluebonnets burst forth in the exact spot (and space!) of the foundation ...perfectly in the shape of the dimensions. The seed had laid dormant under the house all those years!
Tomorrow I am heading to some counties north of here with a friend, to see what bluebonnets there are doing...but I have a few more bluebonnet paintings to post from the secret road! Stay tuned!

I love the texture and use of the brush in this painting. Nice story about the blue bonnets appearing under where the foundation was.

Great little story. Your brush strokes are really nice in this painting. And I love the blues you use for the bluebonnets.
