    Oil on canvas

    48 x 84 inches (121.9 x 213.4 cm)

    Nancy Conrad has said that her pictures are a metaphor for her life. "The substance of water is who we are. The stream bed is our history. All are constantly changing and are affecting each other." Bend in the Concho reflects that philosophy so well. Her rendition of the 246-mile West Texas river with its limestone bed and abundant foliage reveals her familiarity with the palette of the Texas outdoors she loves so much. The water tolerant conifers and hardwoods, an occasional cactus with scattered brush is very realistic and full of perspective, placing the viewer in the middle of the expansive 7 foot wide scene.

    Nancy Conrad's work may be seen all around the American Southwest. Much sought after for her native Texas landscapes, her works exhibit a certain serenity she seeks to achieve in life and art.

    Adelle M. Gallery, Dallas (1986)
