|Another Bluebonnet Painting|
Acrylic on Canvas Panel
6 x 8 in/15.2 x 20.3 cm
Bluebonnets are the cliche of cliches of paintings and painters in Texas. Why, I don't know, other than they are ubiquitous in the springtime, the paintings I'm talking about, as well as the bluebonnets themselves. Every painter of any genre in this state has felt the compulsion to try it at least once.
I'm sure the contemporary and cool artists are rolling their eyes, assuming they're even reading this. But for us representational impressionists, it's a hard habit to break.
Anyway, here in the depths of late summer, I had to paint one, sort of an homage to spring. I hope you appreciate my candor.
