New Bluebonnet and Indian Paintbrush Painting

“Spring’s Glory, Texas Hill Country” ©2012 Niki Gulley
48″ x 30″ textured painting on wrap around canvas

was inspired by a recent trip to the Texas Hill Country. This spring conditions were perfect, and the bluebonnets were amazing! While we were near Fredericksburg, we took a scenic drive along the Willow City Look and as we approached the top of a hill about half way around, we were greeted by this gorgeous view of the rolling hills and bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush in full bloom. Then, to top it off the sun was setting in the distance casting its golden glow and backlighting the wildflowers. I had to capture the magical moment, enhancing the kaleidoscope of colors in the sky and along the ground. Arranging clouds, the road and rows of bluebonnets in rhythmic sweeping shapes, create a harmonious landscape that flows with light, texture and color, and suggest a feeling of optimism about what’s to come.
If you’re in the Dallas this weekend and would like to see more of my Texas bluebonnet and wildflower paintings, please stop by my booth at Richardson’s Cottonwood Art Festival where I will be exhibiting these along with more of my contemporary landscape paintings.
