Like most Texas landscape painters, I have done a lot more than my share of bluebonnet paintings, so though the best of a “Painted Church” was from a plein air done a single Spring afternoon near Schulenburg, the bottom 50 % of a field of bluebonnets was just a major fib. I will not apologize, having said that, as I stand by “Artist Perogative”. Which is practically nothing in comparison to these church buildings! A tour of the “Painted Churches” is a need to see any time of calendar year but specially for the duration of Bluebonnet period. They are located in the communities of Dubina, Significant Hill, Praha, and Ammannsville which dot the Centeral Texas Hill Place. Modeled just after the historical gothic cathedrals of Europe, they were built and adorned by Czech, German and Austrian immigrants all through the 18th and early 19th century. While the exteriors are charming, practically nothing can put together you for the elaborate interiors. Swooping cherubs, intricate styles of bouquets, fake marble pillars and trompe l’oeil make for a fantasy world of sheer delight! So if I explained to a very little visual fib, these poor immigrant artisans painted a Whopper! This helps make them some of the most awe-inspiring illustrations of the loaded cultures imigrants deliver to our reasonable point out and a deal with for any artwork or record enthusiast. Put it on your record of pleasurable issues to do sometime this 12 months!
