Texas Sunset

"Everythings Better with Bluebonnets On It"
9" x 12"

This was my first real attempt at painting Bluebonnets. Living in Texas, it was just a matter of time. I did this as a study for a commission that I'm about to start. I wanted to suggest the details and the size of the flowers without painting each one. I like how the orange sunset plays off the purple. I also created a grass path for the viewer to walk into the painting and leading your eye to the sunset.


  1. Beautiful portrayal of the blue bonnets. Perfect amount of abstraction. Nice!

  2. Thank you Carol! I appreciate the comment!

  3. If I had the cash, I'd have this painting! This is beautiful Randy.
    I will be sending in my membership to OPS later this month.
    Happy New Year!

  4. At last! An artist who sees the mystical beauty of bluebonnets as flowers, not "little blue sticks"! Love your composition and color choices.
