Yes, Everything IS Bigger Here!

Returning to Fort Worth from Houston Sunday, I stopped to sketch the statue of Sam Houston on I-45 near Huntsville.  Like Dallas Cowboys Stadium and the hair of our beloved Texas debutantes, this thing is BIG.  David Adicke's sculpture is 67 feet tall and stark white against the dark green pines.  It's visible from a few miles away when approaching from the south, but I was struck by the closer view, revealing the contrast between the size of statue and the crowd of visitors around its base.


  1. Hi was. a Great Man in all senses. Deserves a statue like that. Like verymuch Jim.

    1. Thank you Tomas. There certainly seem to be a lot of visitors there when I drive by.
