Though Bob Wygant began his career painting industrial scenes for Texas oil companies, as his fame grew he turned first to teaching and then, when the number of commissions he was receiving mounted, he left the university to paint full-time. Wygant takes a Texas approach to the Hudson River School, keeping his figures relatively small in gorgeous landscapes generally rendered in bright acrylics. In Recent Rain, Wygant gives the glory to nature as a new freshet washes down a staircase of red rocks.
