Description The Texas Bluebonnet is typically joined by the red Indian Paintbrush during the mad rush of wildflowers in March. The resulting combination is a delightful red, white and blue display. These beauties adorn the tines of a field cultivator at rest.
Tracy Shiflett, Floresville Member Since May 2008 Artist Statement Tracy Shiflett has enjoyed photography and fine arts since she was a little girl. She has spent many hours, many rolls of film, and many art supplies capturing nature from every angle. Tracy also delights in the digital age with the tools to transform a simple photograph into a new work of art.
"Texas Wildflower" may conjure images of the stately bluebonnet, but Texas is carpeted with flora in every hue. Our tropical climate provides not only flowers like the Indian Paintbrush and the Plains Coreopsis, but also Azaleas and Hibiscus.
Blessed with a beautiful home and acreage near Floresville, the Texas countryside and resident farm animals provide endless opportunity to be in the focus of the artist's eye.
