He had aspi­ra­tions to paint and spent all of his extra mon­ey on brush­es and can­vas. The death of his father dur­ing the Depres­sion forced the sale of the farm and all the fam­i­ly pos­ses­sions. The first items sold, and the most in demand, were his paint­ings. This gave him the encour­age­ment to pur­sue a career in art.

Thrash­er paint­ed what he knew, the Texas land­scape, farm scenes, and wildlife of the state.

Numer­ous works by the artist have been sold at auc­tion, includ­ing ‘Texas Farm­land with Blue­bon­nets’ sold at Her­itage Auc­tion Gal­leries, Dal­las ‘Texas Art Sig­na­ture Auc­tion ‘ in 2013 for $53,131.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=“CV” tab_id=“1556904212591–5cf4ad24-124fcfc7-1e2fbf04-4ffa89a3-53842d12-5b7e”][vc_column_text]Coming Soon[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_tabs][/vc_column][vc_column width=“1/6”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row content_placement=“middle” width=“full” css=”.vc_custom_1556905803913{padding-right: 5% !important;padding-left: 5% !important;}”][vc_column][us_grid post_type=“attachment” images=“902” items_quantity=“15” pagination=“ajax” items_layout=“gallery_default” type=“masonry” columns=“3” overriding_link=“popup_post_image”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
