"Power to the Bluebonnets"

9 x 12
oil on canvas panel

Spring is the best time to head south of Dallas to the Palmer/Ennis area to find the bluebonnets in bloom. Met several other plein air painter friends there last week to capture the beauty of our Texas state flower in full bloom. The rancher whose house is in the background came out to visit with us just as we were setting up. There is a designated Bluebonnet Trail in this area and the property owners are more than generous and welcoming.
Someone said that if you are a painter and live it Texas, you HAVE to paint the's the law!!!


  1. What a beautiful painting, Ann! Wouldn't it be fabulous to live on that ranch and have this stunning wave of bluebonnets to see each spring? I sure think so!

  2. Love these plein air pieces! So proud of you for all your hard work. These bluebonnets are beautiful and I love the composition!
