This young wild burro stands in a forest of ocotillo as a vivid winter sunset colors the Chihuahuan Desert of Big Bend country along the Rio Grande. Framed by tall spikes of ocotillo, a spindly, spiny desert plant that waves brilliant red flower bracts from its tall tips, this backlit burro added enchantment to the already spectacular landscape along the River Road between Presidio and Lajitas, Texas. 

Maybe, I thought, he, too enjoys the view!

COLORING THE DESERT 9" x 12" pastel © Lindy Cook Severns is framed under antique gold rubbed wood molding to echo the desert sunset.



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.
