Pictured below is More than a Memory a limited edition of 200 signed and numbered prints.  This windmill and stone tank no longer grace the hillside about a mile from my studio. They were torn down about ten years ago to make way for suburban growth.  You can wipe the windmill away from the face of the earth, but you can't take it away from an artist's memory. One  spring, I looked at the hillside and remembered yesteryear.  Then I painted

 

More than a Memory

 

I paint Texas--her landscape, her wildlife, her historical buildings--nostalgic things that interest her people. Through the years I've learned that people around the world love Texas and connect with the things that Texans love.

 

More than 8,000 folks collect  my work. My original paintings, fine art prints, open edition prints, and prints from my historical calendars hang in homes and businesses in all 50 states and in 14 foreign countries. I believe that art is for everyone, so I offer art work for every pocketbook.

 

 I was born in Midland and reared in Lubbock, out where the west wind blows and blows and blows. In 1968 those winds blew me and my family 300 miles east to Fort Worth. I'm now firmly planted in Central Texas.  A love for Texas--North, South, East, and West--remains central in my life.

                                   

My other loves include:  Joyce,  my wife of 50 years; our son Vincent; our daughter  Danna;  our two in-law kids---Linda Craig Brown and Cliff Webber;  our four grandchildren---Randall Brown, Christopher Brown,  Danielle Webber,  and Jonathan Webber.

 

My passion for history is evident in many of my paintings.  I spent more than two years researching the contribution the windmill made to the settling of the southwestern United Stated and in completing 40 paintings to illuminate windmill history.  That research led me to produce my first historical calendar in 1999. For nine years, I produced a historical calendar.  Each calendar included 12 paintings, snippets of history about a particular subject, and snippets of my personal history.

Now I'm semi-retired. When you are doing the work you love, you never stop doing that work. But I'm traveling some new trails. I no longer produce a historical calendar, but I still offer calendar prints on this web site.  This makes it possible for people with little money to afford a piece of my work.  I'm doing fewer art shows. I'm now using more of my time to do commission paintings.

Well, that tells you some things about me.  If you'd like to tell me your story, e-mail  dan@danbrownart.com
