The landscapes in the Texas Hill Country are dramatic rock bluffs, miles of land, blue green mountains, rivers, wildlife, cowboys, ranches and open country -- enough to lure any artist out to capture it all in paintings. The Cowboy life has changed, but it is still alive and working in Texas.
“Exposure to range cattle and the cowhand’s way of life started for me in my early life. I’ve been recording their activities on paper and canvas ever since. The Texas Hill Country and the Western mountains and plains produce backdrops for the cowboy’s life. The experiences of riding and working alongside cowhands with my dad on ranches in Texas enabled me to gather reference materials in my mind, on paper with sketches, and in photos. This not only was the helpful beginning of my art experience, but has been a great satisfaction in my life.”
