Cattle, cactus, winding rivers and the Gulf Coast comprise many of Dalhart Windberg’s pieces of artwork on display at the Fredericksburg Art Gallery.
Windberg was the gallery’s featured artist for last week’s First Friday Art Walk.
Some asked the renowned Texas artist which is his favorite painting.
“I haven’t painted it yet,” Windberg said, chuckling, “It’s like having an idea, start painting it, having a certain way you want it to look or come out, and nine times out of 10, it never happens. If you’re lucky, you get close to it.”
Those who visited the gallery during the art walk, though, asked him many questions and listened intently to his responses and to his stories behind the paintings.
One painting, a Longhorn in a field of bluebonnets, shows a burnt orange-and-white Longhorn relaxed, sitting in the field, while, in the distance, a maroon bull walks away.
