Such Loud Silence by wadedillon Such Loud Silence by wadedillon
"Such Loud Silence" depicts James Bowie after the loss of his wife, Ursula Veramendi, during the cholera epidemic throughout Mexico in 1832. A huge thanks to Alamo author Jack Edmondson who pose for this piece at the Spanish Governor's Palace.

Done with pencil, ink, and copic marker; prints are available upon request.

Ok, you just killed me with this one! Anything having to do with Bowie's emotions toward his wife makes me cry! I think I'm going to have to get a copy of this one from you!

P.S. Do you know Pete Gonsalez?

HAHA! We call Pete Indiana Solo or Pete Solo...we're both members of The Rebel Legion and huge Star Wars/Indiana Jones geeks, as well as being Texas History aficionados!

Nicely done. His expression shows quiet grief.

I think I remember reading a quote like this. Is it common in biographies at all? I've always found Bowie pretty fascinating, probably because of the dearth of information on him compared to other people in Texas history.
This is a really great piece!
