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.
