This historic spring gave Big Spring, Texas its name: for centuries, it was a welcome landmark to explorers, Native Americans, travelers and pioneers. Today, thanks to a nudge to nature by my landscape architect brother Kelly Cook, lush native vegetation and wildlife again surround this precious oasis in dry West Texas. 

We first visited this serene spot at sunset-- the distant thunderstorm added to the continuing mystique of water in a semi-arid land, and sound of flowing water welcomed us into the history embedded in this site.

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.
