"Spring's Majesty," Texas Hill Country - New Bluebonnet painting by Niki Gulley

"Spring's Majesty, Texas Hill Country" ©2014 Niki Gulley
18" x 36" textured painting

"Spring's Majesty" was inspired by a trip to the Texas Hill Country when the bluebonnets were in full splendor. While we were near Fredericksburg, we took a scenic drive along the Willow City Look and as we approached the top of a hill about half way around, we were greeted by this gorgeous view of the rolling hills colored with bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush in full bloom. Then, to top it off the sun was setting in the distance casting its golden glow and backlighting the wildflowers. I had to capture the magical moment, enhancing the kaleidoscope of colors in the sky and along the ground. Arranging clouds, the road and rows of bluebonnets in rhythmic sweeping shapes, create a harmonious landscape that flows with light, texture and color, and suggest a feeling of optimism about what's to come.

"Spring's Majesty" is available through the Good Art Company gallery, goodartcompany.com/gac/.
