    Gerald Harvey Jones, better known as G. Harvey, grew up in the Texas Hill Country listening to his father and grandfather tell stories about ranch life and frontier days in Texas, all the while driving cattle across the Red River. His grandfather was a cowboy during the trail-driving era when legends grew up along the dusty trails north from Texas. Family stories of wild cattle and tough men were absorbed and became the genesis of G. Harvey's art. A graduate in fine arts at North Texas State University, Harvey taught full-time and painted nights and weekends for several years. It was through painting that he found his greatest satisfaction, and his native central Texas Hill Country provided the inspiration for most of his early work. Harvey enjoyed enormous success during his lifetime, and the popularity of his work has only increased since his passing in 2017. Hill Country Texas Near Austin, Afternoon in September, Bull Creek, 1968, and Spring in Boerne County, 1970 show a great talent for capturing the light, colors, and contours of the Texas Hill Country-evoking to works of artists like Julian Onderdonk, Robert Wood, and Porfirio Salinas.
