Artist Pops Color into Nacogdoches History


Photo by Wendy Floyd

Artist Dixie Rose Daniels recently completed historical portraits with a modern pop of color on large windows on the side of the Wyatt building in downtown Nacogdoches. The building is currently empty so the paintings give “life” to it even though the subjects are long gone and it makes for fun selfies to boot. Paintingss include (l-r) pioneering Nacogdoches settler, Gil Y’Barbo; the “Father of Texas,” Stephen F. Austin; Republic of Texas president Sam Houston; and Texas Revolutionist, Adolphus Sterne.
