After visiting the Texas Hill Country in the 70’s, Becky knew this was where she wanted to live. She fell in love with the beauty of the Hill Country with its beautiful landscapes, majestic oak trees, flowing creeks and rivers and its beautiful wildflowers. She was in awe, especially after growing up on the Kansas plains in the middle of what used to be called the dust bowl where trees and water were scarce. Her inspiration is the land she calls home, the Texas Hill Country with its unique displays of Mother Nature.
Becky is best known for her Texas Bluebonnet landscapes and for her longhorn, cattle and calf paintings. When painting, she tries to capture not only what the scene looks like but also what it feels like. Especially in a field of wildflowers, she wants the viewer to feel that they could walk right into her painting and feel the warm sun on their face and soak up the scent of the wildflowers. When painting cattle, Becky tries to capture a unique personality in each cow/calf portrait that she paints and that the viewer feels that they can reach right into the painting and pet the little calf.
Overall, her greatest satisfaction as an artist is when she is able to render her subjects in such a way that the viewer experiences that same emotional response she did and that they fall in love with the Texas Hill Country as she has.
She has and continues to study under the direction of the “best of the best” artists in America today. Becky exhibits her work professionally through invitational and juried shows, galleries, and museum exhibits. She is a member of the Boerne Professional Artists (BPA), Oil Painters of America, American Plains Artists, American Society of Bovine Artists,and the Hill Country Council for the Arts (HCCA).
Becky teaches weekly classes and workshops in her teaching studio in the Boerne and Comfort area of the beautiful Texas Hill Country. See her web site at www.beckyrogers.com for class schedules etc.
