Blue Bonnet Belle

Finished a new piece this week as a companion to “Forest Queen” and “Princess on the Prairie”.  This one is “Blue Bonnet Belle”.  Can you guess where she is from?

She didn’t look like much starting out…

Almost done… ready to go back in with pen and ink and add some detailing.

The final touch was her hair with gold F.W. acrylic ink and a nib pen.

  1. OH MY …. this is stunning!!! I can’t believe you incorporated so much about Texas in this painting and it’s spot on, the armadillo, the star and of course our beloved bluebonnets with Longhorns! I thought Princess on the Prairie would be hard to top, but this is close … live in Texas, but Kansas is/always will be my home state:). Thanks for sharing, love your blog!
