This painting was inspired by photos taken along a roadside in Gonzales County, Texas southeast of San Antonio. This roadside featured a steep hillside with Indian Paintbrush covering large patches and vibrant spring green grasses. Large oak trees were scattered about the hillside. This piece is varnished on linen panel and will need a frame for display.

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.
