Hello in Red and Blue

A couple of weeks ago, I cut some bluebonnets and Indian paint brush from our acreage and brought them in to enjoy and paint them.  I started this painting with wet paint on wet paper, adding fuller body color and pulling out color as I saw fit.  After drying, I worked one section at a time continuing this process, stopping for "gut checks" frequently.   This process of refining my painting until it expresses what I intend is quite an exploration.  Thanks to my friend Becky for encouraging me to finish this painting and to share the process!
