Dwarfing the vast, rugged southwest landscape, towering cumulus rise above Pinto Canyon in the desert borderlands south of Marfa. Prickly pear, yucca and sagebrush crowd together amid rocks to look across the deep canyons, blanketed in the tall, undulating grass of summer. But in Far West Texas, the big sky, its clouds creating a skyline of castles in the air, dominates all.

My sincere thanks to this amazing venue for including me in this invitational exhibit once again

COOK  SEVERNS

Big Bend Artist

Old Spanish Trail Studio

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.

Featured in the national 2016 PBS documentary WESTERN PERSPECTIVE, the southwest landscape painter lives on a working ranch in the Davis Mountains near Ft Davis and Marfa with husband Jim, a stubbornly affectionate rescued terrier and a cranky African Grey parrot who passionately loves art.  Her studio sits across the road from Old Spanish Trail Gallery and Museum, where Lindy is the Artist-In-Residence.
