The bluebonnets are blooming! I have seen this every spring of my life, and the beauty of it never fails to take my breath away. They aren't quite this full yet. (Wish ya'll were here) :)

First the applet was acting all laggy and seemed to jerk the color around at the point of contact, instead of applying it, and then somehow (I don't know if it was something I did wrong, but I don't think so) it ate my final layer when I was finished. So I did it over. Dunno, seems to be wiggin out or something. I got some weird dark spots that weren't visible before I submitted, too... but I think that has happened before.

omg! that's gorgeous too!!!!
DinoFlorist (Mar 28, 2004)
that is very pretty. I like clicking through your different versions. It's like watching a 3 panel slide show of the tress growth.

How lucky for you that none of the branches were facing you. I know this to be a very common occurance when drawing trees. lol!
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Mar 28, 2004)
Hah! You are so funny... and that is so true. Actually, when I want to draw a particular tree, I take my chainsaw and whack off all the limbs facing me. Then I just fill in with dark where they are sawed off. ;) (You always manage to make me laugh)

Beautiful.. I've seen this too.. LadyBird Johnson had a decades long campaign planting wildflowers all over Texas..mostly Bluebonnets..I believe... gorgeous pic Mizz Cindy...
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Mar 28, 2004)
Yes, she did. Mrs. Johnson planted wildflowers all over the United States, actually. And sometimes she dragged Lyndon with her and made him help! (lol)She didn't have to help the bluebonnets, though, they help themselves. :) thank you, davin. :D

Such amazing pretty detail, so calming! I'm ever so glad spring has sprung. Nice drawing, I like it very very.

this is very relaxing, I want to be there. funny too about the tree branches, I'm still smiling while writing this, my office must think I'm an idiot, well I guess I am. This one is suitable for framing!

Geeez.....your landscapes are incredible^^;;;.I think I mentioned on another one of your drawings, are you familiar with Thomas Kinkade?Your work really reminds me of his stuff.In fact, I'm going to Cal State Fullerton tomorrow to see him live at some open house thing they have.But yeah, it's great stuff XD.I don't know how you have the patience to do 'all' those flowers so nicely....

This one is lovely. I'd love to be there to see that in person.
DeadlyBlondeArcher (edited Apr 23, 2004)
Lol @ Marcello... the rattlers are pretty docile unless you do step on them... I step over them on a regular basis. (but I'm sure you know that cuz I know you have them where you live, too) :) Come on over, Doodli & emma, we'd be glad to have ya! :D So many nice comments here...thanks to everyone and so glad ya'll enjoyed this one.

DeadlyBlondeArcher (Oct 25, 2005)
It's paradise only briefly, but then... a cowboy's favorite colors are "black and blue".
