Bluebonnet dreams, Texas watercolor challenge

Bluebonnet Dreams, 8 by 10 watercolor, 300 Lb. d'Arches
Texas on my mind.
  Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys on vinyl, "San Antonio Rose," inspired this. Ah, the singular sound of fiddles and the twangs of Texans.
Other songs, "The Yellow Rose of Texas," "Deep in the Heart of Texas." "Red River Valley."  "The Bonny Blue Flag." 
Just because.
(Day 11 of  #WorldWatercolorMonth challenge.)
