I live and paint on a historic ranch southwest of tiny Fort Davis, Texas. My passion for dramatic Texas skies comes from two decades spent in the cockpit of a corporate jet. (Viewing the world from 41,000 feet made clouds real to me. Sometimes, too real!) The vast wild landscapes of the high desert and borderlands of Far West Texas are in my native Texan blood, so that’s what I paint. “A sense of place,” art historian Michael Duty calls this connection of artist to land, and I feel privileged to embrace it.
I’ve had little formal fine art training, yet I’ve painted professionally all my adult life. The places I paint are real landscapes, terrain I’ve hiked, photographed, climbed. Usually, I’m accompanied by my husband Jim, our hardy terrier and my sidekick African Grey parrot, who lends encouragement on a wing and a prayer. These days, I mainly prowl the high desert of the Davis Mountains, Marfa, Alpine and the wilds of Big Bend National Park and surrounds. I never tire of painting our excursions to the Rocky Mountains and Texas Hill Country.
Visit my main website to visit my world through my landscape paintings. My portfolio is interspersed with a few critters in an occasional wildlife painting or drawing, so whenever you go there, you can enjoy a virtual trip to the wild frontier.
Buy an enhanced print, notecards, bookmarks and other fine art gifts online in my studio store, or at one of the Big Bend country gift shops or galleries that carry my work.
My Etsy Shop, LindysBigBendArt also carries my fine art gifts and reproductions.
