Are you a Texan? Love bluebonnets? Every Texan needs 1 or 5 bluebonnet paintings in their house. I love those Texas hill country scenes showing carpets of bluebonnets, with a few Indian paintbrush for extra color, gnarly live oak trees, hills in the background, big Texas sky, maybe some birds. But how about something different? I first saw this painting at Matt’s house above the fireplace. I thought he would never part with it. Here it is for sale in the gallery. Matt told me that a wise man (his father, famous western artist Oleg Stavrowsky) advised him, “As an artist, only fall in love with your NEXT painting.” Matt has created a fun, campy, fresh version of the Texas bluebonnet painting. (Is that a cell phone in her hand? No, it’s bluebonnets!) Loving bluebonnets and art, I look for bluebonnet paintings with an edge – something different. They are hard to find. This is a great one!
Come see Bluebonnet Time in our window at 1706 N. Mays in Round Rock. The painting is an original oil on canvas, 20” x 24”, framed in a silver plein air frame, 30” x 34”. For pricing, please call 512-551-9774 or email email@example.com.
For more information on the famous history of Texas bluebonnet paintings, the book “Texas Art and A Wildcatter’s Dream” about the Edgar B. Davis competitions is a must-read.
