Ladies in Waiting


"Ladies in Waiting".  5 x 7 oil on board.  By request, a field of Bluebonnets.

I found Bluebonnets a challenge to paint.  Simplifying thousands of flowers into as few brushstrokes as possible is a daunting task, but one that's fun to attempt.  I look forward to taking a crack at it again in future paintings.

We are the proud owner's of this painting. My grandparent's had a large painting of Bluebonnets surrounding a Live Oak tree in the Texas hill country. I still miss that painting and the memories it contains.
I was in tears when I received the package from Adele. Your painting captures my request.
Thanks so much,
The Fleri's
