This original watercolor painting serves as testament to the great state of Texas and as a reminder of the many treasures she holds.

Texas contains diverse landscapes that resemble both the American South and Southwest. Most of the population centers are located in areas of former prairies, grasslands, forests, and the coastline. Traveling from east to west, one can observe terrain that ranges from coastal swamps and piney woods, to rolling plains and rugged hills, and finally the desert and mountains of the Big Bend.

The term "six flags over Texas" refers to several nations that have ruled over the territory. Spain was the first European country to claim the area of Texas. France held a short-lived colony in Texas. Mexico controlled the territory until 1836 when Texas won its independence, becoming an independent Republic. In 1845, Texas joined the United States as the 28th state. The state's annexation set off a chain of events that caused the Mexican-American war in 1846. A slave state, Texas declared its secession from the United States in early 1861, and officially joined the Confederate States of America the same year. One Texas industry that thrived after the Civil War was cattle. Due to its long history as a center of this industry, Texas is associated with the image of the cowboy. The state's economic fortunes changed in the early 20th century, when oil discoveries initiated an economic boom in the state.
