About

"These small works are the result of a tribulation. Eyes that could see only double, a heart that gave out from chemo, facial surgery to remove half the face; I lived only in hope against hope to be able to work again. With that old dear longing, restored face, renewed heart, and improving health, I started again to recline upon the shores of Texas waterways and vistas wishing to express as simply as possible my love and delight at being able to see and paint again. Also included in this exhibition will be the egg tempera panel, Christmas, one of the recent paintings completed for The Chapel installation, now 36 years in the making." “God bless us one and all.”—Tiny Tim in A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens —John Cobb When John Cobb enrolled in RISD in 1974, his realist tendencies were ostracized. Using funds intended for his education, Cobb moved to Europe, bought a Vespa, and learned by independent study in museums and by making watercolors in Morocco, Portugal, Spain, France, and Italy. When funds ran low he returned to Austin to finish his art degree at St. Edward’s University. Valley House Gallery has exhibited his work since 2010. This is watercolor, Chinese white, and sumi-ink on handmade paper.
