The mountains of the Chisos tower over the desert floor of Big Bend National Park. The Window is a landmark rock pour-off, funneling water from the relatively moist Chisos Basin to the dry lands below. Pinon pine, madrone and oak make the cooler heights of the Chisos a delightful sanctuary from the harsh heat of the low country.

Looking past the Window, land and sky seem to go on forever in layer of color and mystery.


The original has a forever home now, but this vertical landscape painting from Big Bend National Park makes a lovely small hand-repainted print. Shop the online store now.



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.
