Randy Welborn Biography
He began the "Moments to Remember " series in 1983 with Evening at the Jefferson , the magical movie palace of his youth in hometown Beaumont, Texas circa 1955. Each scene takes you back to not only a certain year, but also to a particular day. It may be graduation day Dragging the Circle , going to a Roy Rogers film with grandpa at the Liberty Theatre in Christmas Corner or celebrating the 4th of July, 1953 at the Carnation Ice Cream Shop .
Many months of extensive research is conducted before the first stroke of paint is applied, such as which movies were actually playing on that particular day. Randy's son, Bryan collaborated on several of the "Moments to Remember " series of paintings. Randy and Bryan have been featured in the magazines Reminisce and Down Memory Lane magazines and have also had artwork shown on two covers of Old Cars Weekly. The Welborn's have appeared on Bob Phillip's Texas Country Reporter television series.
Although each scene depicts locations in Southeast Texas, the "stories in paint" are actually "Anytown, USA" for those of us who grew up during the time of Saturday morning "kiddie shows" and bringing dates to the "Pig Stand."
Each print comes with a "story" telling about the year and some of the trivia to look for in the scene. All print are shipped flat, shrink wrapped and guaranteed to satisfy your yearnings for the "good ol' days". By the way, not every detail is mentioned in the accompanying 'story' - look closely and see what you can find!
Many more paintings are planned for the series. In the photo, Randy is working on the painting of the Snack Wagon circa 1956, the day Elvis came to town. The painting continues and new prints for your collection will appear periodically. Check for the latest paintings on the "Moments to Remember " page, as well as the "Scenic Landscapes" page.
