I was inspired to paint this large Texas landscape of wildflowers and oaks from a spring photo expedition. This particular scene is near Fredericksburg in the heart of the Texas hill country. Unfortunately, what I can not convey in the painting is the incredible aroma of all the wildflowers.  This painting is on gallery wrapped canvas with finished black edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know David

David has always wanted to be a painter. His professional career consisted of design and illustration roles, but it was not until a brush with his own mortality that David decided to change careers and become a full-time artist. “I quit my job in Houston and moved to the small and slow-paced border town of Del Rio, Texas, where I am now living my dream,” he says. Inspired by the outdoors, he often paints outside or takes photographs on his road trips to which he refers once back in his studio. The resulting paintings are marked by impressionist-style brushwork and a natural use of color. David’s pastoral scenes of the countryside are idyllic, invoking within the viewer a serene sense of calm.
