I painted this piece specifically for the Southwest Watercolor Society’s fundraiser. When asked to contribute a painting, I was concerned that my usual non-descript subjects in quiet colors wouldn’t generate a lot of auction action. Big Tex was the answer. He kept me true to my “painting local” theme, and also fit right in with my developing interest in signage. I did liven up my usual color palette to make this a happy piece. It raised a respectable amount for the society in the auction. Thank you to the buyer! Tex will now be hanging in a gorgeous home, and I’m honored for him to be there.
