SERENDIPITY original pastel

American bison in wildflowers

Original Lindy Cook Severns pastel wildlife painting


Soft pastels on archival paper

12" x 24" art is unframed*





This herd of American bison (I've always called them 'buffalo') live in Fossil Rim Wildlife Sanctuary near Glen Rose in central Texas. We happened on them as they woke one October dawn, knee deep in the purple gayflowers and yellow broomweed that mark central Texas autumns.

The herd, like the wildflowers, seemed to be happy and content, and enjoying runoff from the previous night's rain.​​​​--as  we were to find them there.

  • Unframed Paintings and Drawings

    *Purchasing an unframed painting allows you to customize the molding to fit your decor and your budget.

    We hinge mount unframed pastels in a raised, protective foam board sandwich case. This is the way we store them in the studio, and take them to the framer. The nifty, lightweight case keeps your art secure during its travels,  allowing you to store and transport your artwork safely and conveniently. To view your new treasure, simply lift the removable tab of tape at the bottom and gently raise the foam lid.

    Oil paintings are also shipped with protection on both sides of the artwork, but don't require the spacers we use to keep anything from touching the surface of pastels, drawings and prints.
