Today I felt like painting some wildflowers. This image called to me from my stack of photos. These are Chicory plants in bloom. Also known as Blue Sailors. We found a lot of this pretty blue flower growing wild along the roadsides on out trip out to Wyoming. I believe this scene was in Kansas. We were getting onto the highway early in the morning via an access road. The morning light was so beautiful that we had to stop to photograph these flowers. Needless to say, we took an hour to get back on the highway!
