A Texas Wildlife Artist with Talent

Growing up in West Texas my little brother ran with a pretty unique group of guys. It seemed like they were always into crazy things and spent more time playing than working. I figured none of them would amount to much, but as time went by most of them adapted to normal lives and became a part of civilization as the rest of us know it. One of the guys was developing a talent for drawing and through the years I would see a pencil drawing or something else that he had done and realized they were pretty good. I lost contact with this group for many years until just a short time ago when I received an email from my brother asking me if I liked any of the wildlife prints he had just acquired from an artist. The pictures of the prints from the originals were beautiful. I mean these things are the kind of drawings that become Duck Stamps, Conservation Stamps and Outdoor Magazine Covers. I really like the artists work and wanted to know who it was that had done these beautiful waterfowl. I was really surprised to find out it was Ben Beaty of Houston, Texas. What a talent he has become through the years. Ben, I just thought I would tell you and others you have come far in your skill. If you like Ben’s work he can be contacted at the following address.
