Artist Comments: Texans are a proud bunch and we love our state. This is evident everywhere you go here. It would be rare indeed to travel through the Lone Star State and not see a barn or some other out building painted up with the Texas flag like the one in this painting. And you don’t have to travel far outside the city limits to find one either. This particular barn happens to be a famous landmark on US Hwy 377 just east of Stephenville, Texas.

About The Texas Flag

Lone Star FlagThe Texas flag (a.k.a. the “Lone Star Flag”) was adopted in 1845 when Texas became the 28th state. It is a rectangle that has a width to length ratio of two to three. It contains a vertical blue field of color and two horizontal fields of color, one being white and the other one red. The flag also sports a single white star which is located in the center of the blue field. This lone star represents “ALL of Texas and stands for our unity as one for God, state, and country.” Each color field in the flag symbolizes the following:

  • Blue stands for loyalty
  • White represents purity
  • Red is for bravery

Life In Texas Collection

Life in TXTexas is my home state, I was born and raised here. I left home after graduating high school and went out to the west coast to attend college. I did not return until my husband (also a native Texan) retired from the Navy in 2006. During our lifetime we’ve had the opportunity of living in many different places. Now that we’re back in Texas to stay, I’ve been doing a series of paintings which depict what life is like here for me. This will be an ongoing series. Texas is such a large and diverse state, it has a lot to offer when it comes to subject matter to compose a painting from.

I’ll never run out of anything to paint because:

  • in springtime the bluebonnets line the roads as far as the eye can see.
  • the Gulf Coast is naturally gorgeous.
  • some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world happen in Texas.
  • fall brings out an amazing array of colors here.
  • the twisted ribbons of rivers provide an endless source beauty.
  • the beautiful explosion of stars in the night sky is something to behold.
  • the land is open and free.
  • few places have as a rich, storied, and proud history as the Lone Star State.
  • there are real cowboys and cattle in Texas.

And that’s just to mention but a few.

Artist Comments: This oil painting is part of a series of paintings about what life is like in the great state of Texas. This particular painting is about life in general in the rural areas of East Texas. Cattle ranchers abound here and since cattle and other farm animals need food, we also have a lot of hay farmers. Everywhere you go, if you don’t see cattle or horses grazing in a large pasture, you’ll most likely see hay growing there or you’ll see hay that has been harvested and baled.

Hay farmers harvest their hay using equipment called balers. Balers can bale (package) hay in a variety of ways — small rectangle bales, large square or rectangular bales, or large round bales. The large round bales can weigh anywhere from 800 to over 1,500 pounds! When they are that heavy, they have to be moved around with hay forks attached to tractors. Many cattlemen prefer the round bales as opposed to small rectangle bales as they are less labor intensive to store and move, and easier to feed to their own cattle. They place these large round bales inside hay rings so their cattle and horses can graze on them for days. Small farms and ranches, however, may still use the smaller rectangle hay bales since they have fewer heads of cattle to feed.

Artist Comments: Some of the most gorgeous sunsets in the world happen right here in Texas, but of course I might be just a tad bit biased in that regard. I love the bright, colorful sunsets that I have the privilege of enjoying almost every evening. I also love the idea of cowboys, horses and the Old West. I remember back in my childhood pretty much all you could watch on TV were westerns. It was a fantasy life all us kids dreamed about living someday. We would pretend to be cowboys and rode imaginary horses for hours until mom called us in for supper.

When my husband decided it was time to retire from the Navy and settle down to live life as civilians, we bought some land and built a small ranch in East Texas with a couple of horses, a donkey and a few head of cattle. It was our dream to live the cowboy way of life. The cowboy in this painting is of no one in particular, just a cowboy.

Some Funny Quotes About the “Cowboy Way of Life”

• If you’re riding ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it’s still there.

• Always drink upstream from the herd.

• Don’t squat with your spurs on!

• Behind every successful rancher is a wife who works in town.

• Few cowboys ever owned much. The primary reward of being a cowboy is the pleasure of living a cowboy’s life.
