Donald Yena

Dated 1978



Donald Yena (1933- ) San Antonio Artist Size: 20 x 30 Frame: 27.25 x 37.25 Medium: Oil 1978 "Short on Rain" Biography Donald Yena (1933- ) San Antonio Artist Donald M. Yena Through his detailed narrative paintings Donald M. Yena breathes life and meaning into the early days of Texas and the old west. The featured works illustrate the history of Texas cattle ranching from its Spanish roots to the discovery of oil in the petroleum sands of South Texas. Donald M. Yena is a professional western artist. “My goal has always been to produce good, solid, traditional art,” Yena says. “Western art is ours. It is uniquely American. It’s rugged, often haunting and many times humorous.” In Yena’s case precise in every detail. Yena often paints from his museum quality collection for absolute accuracy and detail. He is recognized by many today as “an historian with brush and palette”, having received many accolades from the state and county. As an illustrator his works appearing in historically important books established Yena early on as an important Texas artist. His works are represented in important private collections and have been honored with major exhibits in prestigious banks and museums including the Witte in San Antonio.
