Garden of Blue

Yesterday, a group of us met up at the beautiful hill country ranch of Suzanne Stewart, a fabulous painter and friend. The ranch is a stunning place... truly a painting in every direction. Gardens and hillsides were abundant with spring bluebonnets - already knee high in one area. It looks like it's going to be a great year for wildflowers in Texas. We must have gotten rain at just the right time. Thanks for having us, Suzanne!

Laurel, Love the stronger greens and those bluebonnets against the neutral building. Just a beautiful composition and painting. Bet it was gorgeous at the ranch- sounds like a great day.

They are already out!! I've gotta go see 'em. So excited. This is a beautiful painting - love the warm tones. Complimentary hues and composition are fabulous. Have fun out there! Wish I could join you. xoxo
