"Bluebells Heaven" (oil on linen; 12" x 12") sold


On Monday, I took a drive to the River Bend Park in Great Falls, VA.  I have been there many years ago on my daughter's school field trip as a chaperon.  Yes, it was pretty.  The children had lots of fun, among other things, with archery practice.  Then I forgot all about the place.

Lately I have this unquenchable hankering for romantic landscapes.  So I asked around where I could find bluebell fields.  An artist friend of mine suggested the park.  Oh my!  The entire park grounds seemed to be covered with Virginia bluebells.  Fields after fields by the Potomac River and into the woods.  It was breathtaking and peaceful at the same time.

The only way I could describe my joy at finding myself in such a beautiful place was to drop dabs of thick paints--pointillism.  "Bluebells Heaven" was painted in utter bliss.  I hope you feel my joy when you look at the painting.

  1. Wow, Kim, this is a very unusual piece for you but absolutely delightful. I love Texas Bluebonnets but it has been years since I happened to be there at the right time. Such fun: POINTILLISM is great for you.

    1. Thank you, Carol. I am going to use the technique mote often. A lot of fun!
