Another original landscape in the series created from memories traveling throughout Provence when fields are covered with poppies.

Field of Bluebonnets - o/c 21" x 25"


How lovely is a carpet of royal and bold-blue colored wild flowers growing upon the rolling hills of Texas in spring? They are especially unique too. Bluebonnets grow no where else in the world.

Upon further research of these flowers, I came across an historic quote.  "The bluebonnet is to Texas what the shamrock is to Ireland, the cherry blossom to Japan, the lily to France, the rose to England and the tulip to Holland."  These are words one never could forget.

The oil painting is simply titled "Field of Bluebonnets" and considered first in the original series of these flowering fields.
