Mary Doerr

If it's an Austin landmark, chances are, Mary Doerr's painted it. Doerr specializes in Austin's famous places and sites. You've probably seen one of her many takes on the UT Tower or the Texas State Capitol. Our fave is her lush portrait of Hamilton Pool. Sure, "portrait" may not be a technically correct term for labeling scenics, but in Doerr's case, it seems fitting, as somehow, she manages to catch the character of a place as well as its lines and light.
