    Snow is infrequent enough in the high desert to be considered something of beauty, rather than a bother. Most mountain dwellers simply hunker down and stay home. This snowfall couldn't withstand the morning sun, and it soon melted off the red rock mountain cliffs. But the forested shoulder of this mountain kept its white blanket throughout the day. I don't know what made the bold footprints across the snowy ranch road, but I'd like to think the small animal delighted in the snow, as we did.

      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.
