Commissioned Bluebonnet Painting

Since my last post I’ve been quite busy. First I was finishing up and shipping off my largest ever commissioned bluebonnet painting. The size was 36×42. I’ll write about what it took to ship the painting in another post. My new clients were transplanted Texans living in a new state and wanted something to remind them of home as well as compliment the decor of their newly remodeled living space.

The specifics for the job included the need for a subdued sky, a large oak tree, a view of distant hills, bluebonnets and Indian paint brush which was the key color in matching their decor. After doing a preliminary sketch and approved color study I began painting, Happy to say the clients were very well pleased and they sent me a photo of the painting hanging in their living area.

If you’ve wondered about commissioning a painting I invite you to contact me so we can discuss a customized painting just for you to enjoy in your living space!

      Thank you Betty. I love road trips when there’s an abundance of wildflowers and scenery. It certainly inspires me to paint and I’m glad my art brings beauty and enjoyment to others.

    You really nailed this painting. The painting alone is beautiful and oh what a difference a frame makes.
    Hope you have a big new year planned with lots of blogs.

      Thank you Randy. Yes, framing is important and my client succeeded wonderfully in selecting a frame to match the painting and their decor.
