Texas has a diverse geography as well as a diverse personality. Its country personality is well recognized and exists in many forms, whether it is in one of the major cities or in the country itself. A barn with sides of gray weathered wood and full of hay waited for hungry cattle. Further down the road the roof sagged nearly to the ground on an empty house. Pots of beans and ears of corn simmered over the campfire as apple cobbler baked in the dutch oven while steaming coffee cooked nearby. Ropes neatly secured on Wagons full of vegetables on their way to market. Folks on horseback rode through the city streets along with cars. All the while bluebonnets, red barns, and flowers existed peacefully showing signs of country Texas.
While my study was confined by these archetypes, the country persona is expressed in lifestyle, markets, textures, shapes, colors and various materials. Here are a few of my images. I hope you like them.
