Like most Texas landscape painters, I have completed far more than my share of bluebonnet paintings, so whilst the prime of a “Painted Church” was from a plein air performed a person Spring afternoon near Schulenburg, the base 50 % of a industry of bluebonnets was just a significant fib. I will not apologize, having said that, as I stand by “Artist Perogative”. Which is absolutely nothing in contrast to these churches! A tour of the “Painted Churches” is a should see any time of 12 months but primarily during Bluebonnet year. They are found in the communities of Dubina, Superior Hill, Praha, and Ammannsville which dot the Centeral Texas Hill Region. Modeled following the historical gothic cathedrals of Europe, they were being constructed and adorned by Czech, German and Austrian immigrants during the 18th and early 19th century. While the exteriors are charming, absolutely nothing can put together you for the elaborate interiors. Swooping cherubs, intricate designs of flowers, faux marble pillars and trompe l’oeil make for a fantasy globe of sheer delight! So if I explained to a tiny visual fib, these bad immigrant artisans painted a Whopper! This would make them some of the most awe-inspiring illustrations of the wealthy cultures imigrants bring to our fair state and a treat for any art or historical past fanatic. Put it on your checklist of enjoyable things to do sometime this year!
