Trail of Color

           9 x 9          Sold
 This was not actually meant to be a true representational painting!!  Rather, it just evolved in my studio one day and I really liked it.  Those could be bluebonnets in the foreground - or not!  I am more concerned with the colors and their combinations.  And I think these work pretty well.

The Light on the Path

                 8 x 10          Sold

The sunlight breaking through the forest made some beautiful patterns on the foot path.  This was up in the Tetons last summer when I was on vacation with my family.  Such a beautiful place!!  I put this in an art show and it sold immediately.  I plan to paint a bigger version of this soon.  The colors look washed out in this image, but in reality they are not.

Hill Country Hideaway

9 x 9        Sold
I pass this little place every day and am always inspired to paint it again and again.   It looked especially "paintable"  this spring when all the yellow wildflowers were in bloom and leading a path up to it.  I have never been able to tell if someone lives there or if it is just a weekend getaway.   Someday maybe I will gather up enough courage to just knock on the door and find out.

Spring Tapestry

  20 x 24        Sold
When we have a good year for wildflowers the countryside is a true mosaic of beautiful colors.  It keeps changing as new flowers bloom and others fade out.  The Indian paints were especially plentiful the year before last.  You could find acres of orange as well as yellows mixed in.

Field of Indian Paints

9 x 9        Sold
Well, I am back!!  It isn't that I haven't been painting this past year, it is just that life got too busy and complicated for keeping up the blog.  And in the meantime, I nearly forgot how to do it.
I painted this from a photograph and memory. because this past spring the Indian paints were pretty scarce, as were the bluebonnets in our area. There just wasn't enough rain at the right time for the seeds to germinate.
