    FROM THE ARTIST'S PRIVATE COLLECTION

    Bob Pummill has long been known as an artist adept at capturing the grand adventure of the American West - cattle drives, stagecoaches, wagon trains traveling over long stretches of western prairies-images that most people associate with the "Old West." He has been expertly painting those scenes for over four decades and his work is found in leading collections of western art throughout the country. Although such traditional western subjects still intrigue him, in recent years he has turned more and more of his artistic attention to the land itself. Often that focus is on the rolling hills, limestone cliffs, and wildflower fields of the Hill Country in Central Texas. Following in the footsteps of such past master landscape painters as Julian Onderdonk, Dawson Dawson-Watson, and Porfirio Salinas, Pummill brings a fresh eye and consummate skill to depicting the Texas landscape.

    This work will be featured in the upcoming text Under Texas Skies: the Landscapes of Bob Pummill by Michael Duty.
