Like most Texas landscape painters, I have finished much more than my share of bluebonnet paintings, so although the prime of a “Painted Church” was from a plein air carried out one particular Spring afternoon near Schulenburg, the base 50 % of a area of bluebonnets was just a significant fib. I will not apologize, even so, as I stand by “Artist Perogative”. Which is nothing at all compared to these church buildings! A tour of the “Painted Church buildings” is a have to see any time of year but specifically for the duration of Bluebonnet period. They are located in the communities of Dubina, High Hill, Praha, and Ammannsville which dot the Centeral Texas Hill Country. Modeled immediately after the historical gothic cathedrals of Europe, they have been crafted and adorned by Czech, German and Austrian immigrants through the 18th and early 19th century. Though the exteriors are charming, very little can get ready you for the elaborate interiors. Swooping cherubs, intricate styles of bouquets, fake marble pillars and trompe l’oeil make for a fantasy environment of sheer delight! So if I informed a very little visual fib, these very poor immigrant artisans painted a Whopper! This tends to make them some of the most awe-inspiring examples of the rich cultures imigrants bring to our reasonable point out and a handle for any art or history enthusiast. Set it on your listing of enjoyment items to do sometime this year!
