We just had to share this stunning example of modern Texas art. As the homeowner was preparing to relocate, this stunning piece of art stole the show.
Texas art has always been a staple in any Texas home but its popularity is growing across the USA and more and more modern artists are becoming inspired.
Alamo art, maps, flags, and more are regularly found in home offices, commercial offices, dens and family rooms while landscapes, cowboys, ranchers, cowgirls, statesmen, Indians, and settlers are commonly found displayed in living rooms and dining rooms of our Texas estates.
Some of the artist we curate are John Ewing, Michael Boyett, Jane Felts Mauldin, Wallace Simpson, Dalhard Windberg, and one that is always especially in high demand is Porfirio Salinas.
Porfirio Salinas is known for his impressionistic landscapes of Texas Hill Country. He was initially exposed to art through his employment at an art supply store, where a chance introduction with Robert William Wood led to a position as the artist’s studio assistant. Salinas studied the work of Woods and others in the community, and began joining Woods and Jose Arpa on inspirational nature-walks through the Texas hills. Eventually Porfirio paintings began to sell to wealthy Texans and politicians. His clientele grew to include Lyndon Johnson when he was a Representative of Texas. Johnson often referred to the painter as his favorite artist and ultimately Salinas’ work adorned the foyers of the White House. This public endorsement led to nationwide exposure and acclaim. Salinas captures the raw beauty of Mother Nature unlike anyone.
