Photography is a way to capture the moments when I connect intimately with the beauty in the world: natural beauty, man-made beauty, and the convergence of the two. 

My training is in an Eastern contemplative arts tradition that emphasizes experiencing the world in a direct and non-judgmental way. 

It requires a quiet, open mind to see what is there to be found in that instant. 

From this view, the images are presenting themselves and my art is fashioned by engaging with them. 

A strong photograph is one that captures a moment in such a way it transmits the experience to the viewer. 

My passion is doing photography along the coast of Texas where the mix of man and nature, of land, sea, and air, construct images that are figurative, impressionistic, and even abstract.

Kristine Byars Artists of Texas Equine Art

Kristine Byars uses vivid color to create paintings that are often playful, and yet evoke warm emotions. One consistent theme in her art is a great love of nature and all creatures. Horses hold a particularly special place in Kris' heart, and when not painting she can often be found with her quarter horse, Sparky.  Kris lives a life surrounded by nature in Texas with her husband Steve, cat, golden retriever, and Sparky.

Impressions are what I like to paint, they can be simple or complex. I'm an oil painter who lives near Houston/Galveston area and I paint a seascapes and related oil paintings, as well as landscape, still life and portrait. I do teach plein air painting twice a year and frequently go on location to paint. To learn more about my paintings and where to buy visit www.KirbysArt.blogspot.com

I love painting people, getting just the right expression in their eyes, leaving a little mystery, telling a story. I paint with unexpected color combinations that visually blend to believability, creating beautiful skin tones. Pastel is my first and only medium. With its range of subtle lights and intense darks, I can achieve a transparent glowing luminosity or thick impasto.

10" x 16" textured oil painting


I painted these cheerful poppies with extremely thick oil paint and palette knives to achieve depth and texture. The resulting image comes to life and is loaded with uplifting color, energy and movement.

Meet Texas Artist Dave Blow

A whole new movement has emerged, connecting ecology with theology: ecotheology. Outside the bounds of organized religion, people are reawakening to nature as a sacred sphere; a rediscovery of Native American spirituality, the Gaia Hypothesis, and the Ecological Spirituality of Matthew Fox and Wendell Berry, all are part of this phenomenon. It's rare to find a person who hasn't experienced a deeply moving and pleasurable sense of oneness with something awesomely larger than themselves just through looking at the stars on a clear night... at the rhythmic circling of the birds overhead... buzzing of bees in the blossom's of spring...hiking in the woods or on the beach.

My work is embracing the technological changes that are taking place in our culture, while maintaining my love for the beauty of our natural environment. Multiple images are used to show the magic of a time found in nature's seasons. Through the use of the computer, I bring the viewer into my poetic vision of universal harmony between nature, man and technology. Aesthetically, I am seeking to show the harmony between the natural environment and the electronic one.
