This was a commission piece for a client who was originally from Texas. She wanted a painting of bluebonnets, the state flower. I don't usually do commissions anymore, but I was given free rein to come up with how and what I wanted to paint. Never having been to Texas, I had to research to learn what the flower looks like and typical terrain where it grows. This painting came to me from several images I saw while learning about the flower.
