Your pastels capture the colours of the Big Bend ... and if the colours aren't right, the atmosphere isn't right...

-Dr. Wm in London & Yorkshire

Rob and I are so pleased with the masterpiece which is now hanging proudly in its new home... It's truly much more dramatic and beautiful in person than the photos give it credit many vivid colors and detail! I feel as if I could walk right into it and keep hiking along the arroyo towards the mountains. 

 -C. J. in Texas hill country

I hung my large pastel painting it on the wall an hour ago.  It looks fantastic.  I am delighted with it!  It has an amazing glow that makes it look like it is somehow magically back lit.  Thank you so much for working with me on the payments.

 ~David in Oregon

We framed your work with the museum glass you recommended and it looks gorgeous!  And I've been giving out your notecards as gifts to some of my friends, all of whom have loved them. I just really love how your pastels are so vibrant, so different from other pastel art I've seen.

What Collectors and Critics Say About
Lindy Cook Severns Art

Oh Lindy! It’s 1:00 in the morning in Switzerland (I’ve got jet lag and can’t sleep). And I have tears in my eyes ... {looking at the photo of their new pastel painting}  To my mind the Davis Mts are heaven on earth. You’ve captured it ... Thank you - this made my year.  
- it’s beyond lovely.

Lindy has "an amazing ability to capture both the bold colors and dramatic formations of the far West Texas landscape, but also the subtle variations in light and shading... she can skillfully present the grandest of vistas, but she also equally masters the most delicate details of sand, rock, and grass. She is particularly adept at painting the western sky in all of its drama and color. When I look at Lindy’s work, I feel an immediate kinship with her vision and love of the western landscape."
