Just released: a new series of the Texas Hill Country paintings. The first painting of Lawn Chair with Bluebonnets represents our childhood memories of the beauty of creation in the spring with an old metal lawn chair in the middle of a yard blanketed with bluebonnets. The second painting of Independence Pond is a bright, colorful display of the beauty of creation in central Texas. This small pond located in Independence Texas is surrounded by the Texas State flower, bluebonnets, and other colorful wildflowers. The orignal paintings ARE for sale, and less expensive prints are now available in a variety of sizes.

Behind the Scenes...
It is finished! View the slideshow of the work on the Circle Drive-In! See the actual preliminary drawings and the models used to help create the painting. (Audio commentary from the artist is now online.) If you have any particular recollections about the Circle Drive-in, I would love to hear your story. Just e-mail me. The time I have selected for this painting is the summer of '57. If you grew up in the 50's in Beaumont, you will recall the "clown" mural. It was apparently painted in 1954. On June 13th of that year, the theatre had it's "grand re-opening" with it's new wide screen. Claude Ezell was the owner, along with W.G. Underwood. Together they owned several theatres in Texas and had the same artist paint similar circus themes on many of them.
Randy Welborn shares some details about his paintings in his biography.
