Far West Texas enjoys the most amazingly colorful sunrises. This is the view one dawn as we hiked Brown Mountain, the Davis Mountains peak we call "home". From this rocky outcropping, you can see sixty miles or more in every direction. I always feel like I'm standing on the tip-top of Texas. 


Sunrise is fleeting, so I created this vivid pastel painting in my studio. Several photo references helped me replicate the colors of that morning hike. No artistic license used--I'm not sure I would've been bold enough a painter to make these colors up! 


The Davis Mountains, the vantage point in this painting, are volcanic in origin, so I like to paint an inner glow into the rocks by doing a warm underpainting that makes the finished painting glow, too.

Big Bend Artist

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.
