A Stunning Spring just for eBay

We’ve had several requests for me to post more paintings on eBay and I’ve been trying to find the time to do just that. But our galleries have sold several pieces recently. Santa Fe has empty walls from our successful collector event and I still have commissions to do, one is 60 inches by 60 inches. So I don’t know how much I’ll get to list on eBay in the next few months. However, with all that said I have a special painting just for our eBay collectors!

CLICK HERE to go directly to my auction of A Stunning Spring.

If you’ve never seen Texas in the spring you have certainly missed a beautiful sight. The landscape looks as if God has splashed buckets of paint in all shades of the rainbow across the hills. The intensity of color is amazing. And the Bluebonnet is in its glory. Fields appear to be covered in blankets of blue. Many of the artists who follow my blog have asked how I paint our state flower. So today I will narrow the focus of our step-by-step and concentrate on the Bluebonnets. Cobalt Blue + White is the base color used to block in the flowers. A touch of Ultramarine Blue is added to the mix making a duller blue to use for the flowers toward the back of the field.

The gentle S curve of the road is now painted. The foreground is in shadow while a hint of sunlight illuminates the road as it disappears around the bend.

The foliage is painted around the blue of the flowers. Various mixtures of Pthalo Blue + Cadmium Orange + White are used for the leaves of the Bluebonnets.

Details of the blue blossoms, stems and leaves are added. The final step of painting Bluebonnets is to add the white petals that top the blossoms like tiny white caps. As the flowers recede into the distance a touch of blue is mixed into the white for the tops so they will fall back. To see any of these pictures larger just click on the image.

A Stunning Spring      Senkarik Original Oil Painting

On this crisp spring morning you can see the mist rising from a stream at the base of the hill in the distance. The addition of an old red barn and a windmill in the field of wildflowers makes for A Stunning Spring to enjoy all year ’round hanging on your wall.

A Stunning Spring is quite a bit larger than I normally paint for eBay but you’ve requested some bigger pieces. I try to do as I’m asked! The painted image is 19 inches tall by 25 inches wide. The outside dimension of the frame is 24 inches tall by 30 inches wide. A Senkarik Original Oil Painting this size retails in our galleries for $1,900. The painting is wired, ready to hang, and the hanger with a nail is included. Bidding for this piece starts at 1 cent. That’s right, A PENNY!

Remember, the auction ends Sunday, October 21 at 8 PM Texas Time (Central Time Zone). HAPPY BIDDING! Hugs, Mikki Senkarik

    It is such a beautiful scene — I have not seen the Bluebonnets in real life but it must be an awesome sight. I love all your work. The instructions for painting the individual steps is a very generous sharing on your part. God Bless.
