Texas Treasures

"Texas Treasures"
9"x11" Original Oil on Museum Quality Board

"Texas Treasure" 9"x11" Oil on Museum quality panel.
A day off, and my morning walk inspired me to paint these beauties today. I love to worship Jesus, singing and praying as I walk. The fragrant field of bluebonnets sent a calmness and peace over me. I couldn't help but be reminded that there is no sense is worrying about anything. This visual reminder of how my Father in Heaven artistically created these fields of fragrant beauty, awakened His Word in me.

"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Matthew 6:28

The procedure that I used for this painting was to paint from life, not a photo.  I took a workshop last year from Nancy Medina. She does all of her paintings from life, and I gleaned what I could from her.  I love Texas wildflowers and old blue bell jars.  What about you?
