Longing for a Texas Road Trip? This Artist Gives a Nostalgic Look at Beloved Stops in the Lone Star State
Celebrate adventures from summers gone by with a gallery wall dedicated to the South's largest state.
Vacations have certainly looked a little different this summer. Maybe you traded in a flight for a trip on the open road. Perhaps you planned a staycation and dreamed of future family getaways. However you’ve spent your time off, it’s hard not to reminisce over beloved haunts from past adventures. If any of those special memories include cruising through the back roads and interstates of Texas, you’ll be able to celebrate the work of Houston artist Jim Koehn.
From famed barbecue joints to the orange-and-white stripes of Whataburger, Koehn’s watercolor prints capture all the magic of a vacation in the Lone Star State. The best part? You won’t even need to get behind the wheel to relive the stories of summers gone by.
Even if you can’t make it to the Texas Hill Country this summer, you can collect prints of the Luckenbach Post Office, Hamilton Pool, and Enchanted Rock. Miss two-stepping on Saturday nights? Pick up prints featuring the Broken Spoke in Austin or Gruene Hall, the state’s oldest continually operating dance hall. Past and present Houston residents will have plenty to celebrate from Shipley Do-Nuts and House of Pies to the Johnson Space Center. Any road tripper knows that no Texas drive is complete without a stop at Buc Ee's, and Koehn has an homage to the famous Beaver, too.
