The medium is just part of the magic. Henry Neubig, The Louisiana Mud Man, creates scenes from his home with his actual homeland. Reds, ochres, pinks and greens in his paintings are created from rich, silt mud he mixes with egg yolk and water.
These blends become paint for Neubig’s grand plantations, Cajun shacks and the birds, moss and cypress of the swamps from his mud palette. Abandoned, half-hidden homesteads, weathered barns, herons, and a woman hanging laundry are some vistas on display at Texas Artists Museum in July.
The works of Port Arthur area artist Doug Jackson, who paints with a headband stylus, are also up in July.
