Summer in Far West Texas is short and usually, wet. (Gotta love it.) As we drove to town for our mail, a white horse waded in such brilliantly colored water in this small tank on a Davis Mountain ranch, I had to paint him that hot summer day during our monsoon season. This landscape is near Point of Rocks on Hwy 166, the Davis Mountain Scenic Loop.


A bit of history:  Point of Rocks was a rest stop on the old Overland Butterfield Trail route between San Antonio and El Paso. Working ranches still cover most of the thinly populated high desert country of Jeff Davis County in Far West Texas.

Big Bend Artist Lindy Cook Severns, a seventh generation Texan,  paints real places in the wild American west, the high desert ranch lands of Far West Texas and Big Bend country.  Lindy's paintings hang in most every state in the USA, and in collections in England, Australia, Germany and Canada.  The pastel landscape artist | oil painter is among 35 artists selected for inclusion in the definitive book TEXAS TRADITIONS, CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS OF THE LONE STAR STATE, Michael Duty and Susan Hallsten McGarry, 2010.
