A great job by Austin Interior Designer Stephanie Wilson @stephaniewilsondesign on her awesome accessories and artwork selection for Landers Premier Flooring showroom. I have to say I think the complementary color scheme works great. She had the clever concept of creating a diptych set of prints from the original painting “360 Bridge Detail”. The prints are identical to the painting, an acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas that measures 36 x 48 x 1.5”. Thank you to Stephanie Landers for the opportunity to showcase my artwork. Check out their website at www.landerspremierflooring.com. A special thank you for a wonderful job by Michele and Holly and all our friends at Skyline Printing @skylineartprintsatx in Austin, Texas. #instaart #atxartist #texasartist #atxart #landerspremierflooring #skylineart #skylineartprintsatx #pennybackerbridge #acrylicpainting #artprints #showroom #diptych #interiordesign #stephaniewilsondesign

Watercolor Wednesday - Reposts with additional scenes from our Florida vacation in 2018. As Hurricane Michael bears down today on the ‘Forgotten Coast’ and the ‘Big Bend’, we are thinking of our family and friends in the path of the storm from Tallahassee to the Island of St. George and all along Apalachicola Bay to Port St. Joe and beyond. The beach life beauty of the coastline, abundant aquatic resources and preserves along with such amazing inland forests are what attracts tourists and plein air artists alike to this incredible region. We’re all hoping these fragile environments are able to endure the surge from this unprecedented storm. #stgeorgeisland #apalachicola #forgottencoast #florida #hurricanemichael #florida2018 #vacation #watercolor #pleinair #atxartist #texasartist #watercolorwednesday

Hometown memories from the West Texas town of Midland. The occasion of the MHS class of 1978’s 40th Reunion brought a flood of emotions last weekend. After being away for far too long it was remarkable how good it was to see my classmates and friends from Midland. These images are from a limited edition print of a montage watercolor commemorative painting I produced for the centennial events back in 1985. The “Tall City” of the Permian Basin has its roots in cattle and oil but is also home to some truly wonderful people whom I am proud to call my friends. #watercolorpainting #midlandtexas #midland #reunion #tallcity #atxartist #texasartist #instaart #prints #montage #centennial

Portrait of the artist William Henry Rinehart born on this date in 1825 in Union Bridge, Maryland. His legacy includes establishing an endowment that created what is now the Rinehart School of Sculpture at MICA, the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore (2). A very clever Rhino graphic with heart shaped spectacles from MICA. (3) A painted portrait of the artist in 1865 by Frank Blackwell Meyer. My father’s mother Erma Rinehart Wilson of Dallas, Texas was a descendant of W. H. Rinehart. #mica #rinehart_sculpture #rinehart #whrinehart #rinehartschoolofsculpture #themet #waltersmusuem #corcorangallery #baltimore #mfahouston #chryslermusuem #sculpture #classicalsculpture #portrait #artist #sculptor #instaart #americansculptor
