The Chisos Mountains of Big Bend National Park rise without warning from the harsh Texas borderlands. No other mountains in the continental USA dare extend so far south, so deeply into the Chihuahuan Desert. Few other Texas peaks so boldly pierce the sky. Some say the name “Chisos” comes from a Native American word for

Summer Softens the Texas Mountains (and a Young Artist's Hardened Heart) Lindy Cook Severns Art

Few people know Texas has mountains. Many don’t appreciate their fearful beauty. Savoring Texas mountains is an acquired taste, and those who befriend these wild, high desert peaks don't take them for granted. I paint the Davis Mts with the awe I feel when summer softens life's hard edges in West Texas ranch country.
