I painted this view out my studio window one afternoon while cold spring wind threatened imminent rain. A PBS film crew was coming to my Davis Mountains studio that day to catch me at my easel for the 2016 documentary WESTERN PERSPECTIVES.

We'd all planned to be on location, with me painting en plein air that afternoon for the filming, but nobody dared brave the West Texas weather, not even for the fame and glory of television.


Looking out my window seemed the order of the day. There was plenty going on in the sky to inspire me. Thus, I think of this pastel landscape painting as a plein air from under shelter!

Big Bend Artist Lindy Cook Severns, a seventh generation Texan,  paints real places in the wild American west, 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 England, Australia, Germany and Canada. The pastel landscape painter | 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. Lindy is the recipient of the 2020 Distinguished Alumni Award for the College of Arts & Sciences of Texas Tech University.
