Blue Jean Bluebonnets by Texas Flower Artist Nancy Medina

Blue Jean Bluebonnets

Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

 I've been exercising my landscape brushes lately, and the new collection of paintings would not be complete without at least one new bluebonnet, don't you agree? Blue Jean Bluebonnets reminded me so much of one of my favorite pairs of extra soft, extra worn jeans from my teen years, back when pale blue denim was in style and super wide bell bottoms. I've had lots of trips down memory lane lately, staying with mom and helping go through paperwork, favorite books and records, as well as a few terrifying photos of myself with big hair and glitter blue eyeshadow from the 1980s which you'll notice I'm not including here. 

Also in the mix was a great deal of birdwatching, and the little feeder attached to mom's kitchen window attracted more than just birds. AnnieBee got up close and personal with a squirrel, as you can see here! I'm not sure what she was thinking, what do you think was going through her head?

She was thinking, "What IS that?" Anyway, the field of bluebonnets is beautiful, Nancy.

I too wore the big bells in high school...I skipped much of the 80s trends, fortunately though...

Love the softness of the painting. Love the way you captured the essence of bluebonnets. Annie might have to meet my Ruby :)

Nancy Medina said...

Sherry you were much smarter than I was!

Judy can Ruby teach Annie how to chase squirrels?
