Painting Texas wildflowers is the annual challenge of spring.
Colorful Texas wildflowers entice the artist in all of us.
Texas Wildflowers Inspiration
The first explosion of native wildflowers has begun, the first I found up close being the blanket flowers growing on a street corner in Somerville, Texas.
Spring Texas Wildflowers
Yesterday I stopped to get a closer look at the bluebonnets, Indian paintbrush, and tickseed blooming near highway 36 and FM 1948. Washington county will soon be covered in glorious color. The peak bloom time is expected on Easter weekend, though they will continue through next month.
Summer Texas Wildflowers
And summer varieties will soon follow . . .
Lately I find myself not sketching every day, but just adding bits here and there to my journal when the mood strikes, whether text or drawings. But I just can’t let the first wildflowers of the season get by without trying once again to capture their likeness.
