Description Built in San Antonio in 1731 by Franciscan friars, this is the best preserved of the Texas missions. The Battle of Concepcion was fought here on October 28, 1835 between Mexican troops under Colonel Domingo Ugartechea and Texian insurgents led by James Bowie and James Fannin. It was the first major engagement of the Texas Revolution. A sepia version of this print is also available. Search: Mission Concepcion in sepia Beck
Gordon Beck, Anthem, Arizona Member Since May 2008 Artist Statement Thanks for your visit.
I’m a self-taught photographer and artist with an interest in nearly all artistic expressions so I don't pursue any one style or genre.
My portfolio includes a mix of photos, digital artworks, and a number of more traditional acrylics and oils.
I also try to produce bright, cheerful images…I realize art can speak in many voices, but I’ll leave the darker commentary to others. I'm 60+ and feel the best years are still ahead. Faith and family are the most important things in my life, and I wake up every day feeling a sense of excitement about the creative possibilities ahead.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions. And thanks again for stopping by
