The Texas hill country seems to be somewhat of a best kept secret. I remember when I first came to the United States in 1987 and lived in West Texas for a short while, even people in other parts of Texas do not seem to know about the hill country.
I painted a particular colorful Texas blue bonnets and paintbrush back then and posted it on EBAY at the time to sell. Shortly I received an email from someone in Texas telling me that there are no such pretty flowers to be found in Texas because it is a barren land. Her tone suggested, she had pretty strong feelings about making this clear to me.
Not wanting to argue with a stranger who probably has lived in the US for all her live and me being a new plant straight from Europe, I just let it go. However in my research I came across many photographic evidence that such meadows filled with flower perticularly Blue Bonnets and Indian paintbrush do exist in what is known as the Texas Hill Country. If I ever moved to Texas that is where i would want to live but in my research I also found that it is a bit out of my affordability meter. So hopefully I sell more art... hint hint ... and that will change! Here I painted the lovely blue Bonnets and Indian Paintbrush once again. This is a watercolor and Ink.
