Little Paint Creek is one of the prettiest places - even without the longhorns. Add in those big, powerful guys and it's a spot that says "Texas" loud and clear. I enjoy painting the sparkling streams and towering bluffs of the Hill Country where I make my home. In fact, there is a stream on the back of my property where I can go for my quiet times. It's pretty deep and very shady so it is good even in the heat of summer. I usually see one of my good friends there - a large fish. He always appears looking for a hand out when he hears my truck and my footsteps.
HISTORY & BACKGROUND
Ragan Gennusa grew up in East Texas enjoying the outdoors and sports, but he was drawn to art and could always be found using his pencils and brushes when he had an opportunity. “Art was just something I always enjoyed,” he recalls.
Gallery work allowed Gennusa to develop his art. During this time, he became involved with the Gulf Coast Conservation Association, Ducks Unlimited, and other similar groups. “I’ve been fortunate to meet a lot of people in the sporting arena who liked my art,” says Gennusa. The artist now has a thriving career painting the great outdoors and its endless sporting images; his many commissions to paint animals or the Western landscape are sought by people throughout the United States.
Gennusa is well known for his longhorn paintings, some of which have been special commissions for the University of Texas, and his horse images. Wild turkeys are also one of Gennusa’s favorite subjects. Working mostly on commission, the artist very much enjoys visiting ranches throughout Texas and learning about their history, which has fostered his interest in Western and Native American themes.
