Russell Cushman: Texas Artist; Sculptor, Muralist and Plein Air Landscapist. Dear readers: I have set up a special blog, just for my art at http://russellcushmanart.blogspot.com/ A painting done "plein air."
A river of Texas history, music, art and travel articles
Welcome to my "Stream of Consciousness," where I hope to give readers an artist's view of the local color and current issues of Navasota Texas, a place I have grown to love and have enjoyed for many years. Many legendary characters have made historic contributions to our incredible scrapbook, that all flow together into our story like so many streams feeding into the historic Navasota River Valley. You will find articles about Local History, Art, Navasota's Hall of Fame, our Music scene, some Political opinions, and a few original songs! So go ahead, and dip your toe into the Navasota Current!
A sixth generation Texan, landscape painter, sculptor, photographer, writer and historian, Russell Cushman shares his passion for the music, art and history of the Brazos Valley.
Russell has a blog about his art career, russellcushmanart.blogspot.com., and quite a few other blogs! One features his "e-book" called The Light of Day, about the history of blues music in Texas. Another is his e-book called Mothers Teach Your Children, which is a study of some famous American mothers, illustrated by old tintypes found in a significant collection of old images. Russell has also created a blog about his family heritage for his relatives, called Gone to Texas. One to preserve the art of David Woods of Grimes County, Texas. Several others have been made over the years covering entertainment, including one about his mural depicting Texas Music Legends from in and around Navasota, Texas.
