The Last Bluebonnets
The bluebonnets are on the wane here, only a few left and those look exhausted. I admit to poaching the yellow flower from the library beds early this morning. I think it is a kind of day lily, so it only had one day of glory anyway. These look like tiny orchids and float on long stems above the thin grass-like leaves. I was very economical with my brush strokes here, did not repair much in the process of painting it and mostly tried to leave the edges alone.
