12" x 9" plein air pastel, unframed
"These wild and empty spaces aren't for everyone. Complex skies swallow you in their splendor. Color on distant horizons turns surreal in the blink of an eye. A road, more often than not leads to a landscape more rugged, and the sheer magnificence of the mountains can overwhelm even the most jaded traveler.
That's what I love about Big Bend country. That's what I paint. I paint to share the splendor of this world with you.
Do return here often! As we say here in West Texas, 'Don't be a Stranger.'
No one actually NEEDS art or music or poetry in their life, but finding beauty on a cloudy day can make the spirit sing. Treat yourself. You deserve loveliness in your daily life."
- Big Bend Artist Lindy Cook Severns
THE RIVER ROAD , the Rio Grande
16" x 24" pastel
I'm a native Texan, a Big Bend Artist, an Outlaw Pastelist.
I paint southwestern landscapes in luminous oils or in vibrant soft pastels.
My art takes you down roads less traveled.
Follow me along unmarked trails where light falls on terrain free of footprints.
Join me as I share the silent desert dawns and rioting sunsets.
This is my world. Welcome!
~ Lindy Cook Severns
About Texas Landscape Painter Lindy Severns
"I have visited the Big Bend...and have for some time wanted a painting of the area. Alas,...in my view, no-one has actually been able to get the colours right, and if the colours are not right then the atmosphere is not right, either. I was therefore delighted to come across your website, as the online images look very good indeed – the best I have seen by a long chalk.
'The River Road' embodies how I remember the Big Bend."
~Dr.W.M, London, England

at the Museum of the Big Bend, Alpine Texas
Old Spanish Trail Studio and Old Spanish Trail Gallery and Museum form a fine art complex on a historic working ranch in the Davis Mountains of Far West Texas. The ranch, a scenic 20 minute drive from Fort Davis, is also near Marfa and Alpine.
Lindy is the Artist-in-Residence for the upscale fine art gallery, which sits across the ranch road from Lindy's (usually messy) working fine art studio.
OSTG is a destination gallery, open seven days a week year around but with no regular hours. Set up a visit to suit your schedule. (If we can't be there, someone can!) Bring your camera, and watch for aoudads, curious javelina, cattle and mule deer. In the summer, hummingbirds will entertain you on the porches.
Lindy's working space, Old Spanish Trail Studio is sometimes open, also by appointment. You can start with the studio, then move right across to the gallery.
Contact us. Tell us what you'd like to see.
We'll put the coffee on, shoo away the cattle and make your visit to the Old Spanish Trail Art Complex a special one! (No need to spruce up-- relax & enjoy!)
