West Texas Yucca Painting | Davis Mountains State Park | Small Pastel Desert Landscape | Gift for Nature Lover


"Yucca at Davis Mountains," oil paint on 8" x 6" wood panel mounted on 1" wood frame, original painting. Ready to hang without frame for natural wood gallery look, but you may frame it as well.

Yuccas & West Texas. These are the Davis Mountains near Marfa, Texas. If you've been to that little slice of high-desert heaven -- you know this mountain range skyline. This is the view from a hiking inside the Davis Mountains State Park.

I spend a lot of time exploring the high desert region of West Texas, near Marfa and Fort Davis and all over the Davis Mountains. And whenever I see this mountain outline, it fills me with longing to go back. West Texas always makes me think of this Tolkien quote: "Not all those who wander are lost."

I’m Courtney! Born and raised in Austin, Texas, I have spent my life wandering through the woods of the Texas Hill Country, tubing it’s rivers, boot scoot’n in its dance halls and exploring this great state with so much diverse beauty. I travel out to the high deserts of West Texas as often as I can to see the night skies in the darkest place in North America and soak up the big skies and desert landscape.

I started oil painting when I was 9 and haven’t stopped. I love to paint places I feel connected to and hope these paintings act as windows for others to feel connected to them too. Nostalgia and mystery are common themes in my work, and “Sehnsucht,” a German word that resonates with me and means an intense yearning we feel especially for the unfinished parts of our life. Often when I paint night lights, or blue flowers, these are all symbols for this word “Sehnsucht.”

Thank you for collecting my work as I explore mystery, nature and human connection through my paintings, mostly in Texas with occasional ramblings to Colorado and New Mexico. Please message me , and introduce yourself! I’d love to learn something about you✨
