"The beauty and drama of nature emanates from the canvas with subtle expressiveness."
Linda Kreutz, special article to
The Austin-American Statesman.

She continues...
"Texas scenery comes alive in the paintings of Austin artist Bette Lou Voorhis.

Her oil paintings capture the diverse faces and moods of the Texas landscape
... A leisurely stroll, a rapid tour, a moment of rest to study a painting more closely or even a quick glance leaves the viewer with a feel for the land and the flavor of our state.

I found Mrs. Voorhis' large landscapes appealing
... She is a gifted and practiced artist in her treatment of sky, water, foliage and landforms... Yet she never allows a scene to become merely a show of technical virtuosity or repetitious in content.

Instead each picture projects a feeling of place and time
... Be it a lonely country road overgrown with greenery and lighted by filtering sun, a water inlet reflecting clear, fresh sky or a hill country vista disturbed by an approaching storm, each has its own identity in the total character of Texas' personality.

Often a man-made element, weathered homes or barns, leaning fences, horses tied to a gate or dusty roads, key a scene or become the focal point of a painting
... Or perhaps a tree set against the action of nature's sky is the subject of closer study."
