FIFTY MILES TO COFFEE is a blog about the art I create: New West Art , the things I see and photograph, and things I do in the west Texas panhandle where I now live.
My paintings are mostly rooted in the imagery of the American west, but reflected in a colorful, urban-contemporary style.
The title “FIFTY MILES TO COFFEE” is a line from the film classic, “GIANT”. Emerging from the train at the Reata Ranch railhead into a blustery Texas wind, Rancher Jordan Benedict (Rock Hudson) says to his Virginian bride (Liz Taylor) “Come on Leslie, it’s fifty miles to coffee.”
Texas is still a mighty big place.
