This Isn’t A Photo Gallery Of Small Town America. The Truth Is Shocking.


There’s nothing more quaint and nostalgic than small town America. That’s a truth that Canadian-born artist Rod Penner knows very well. For Penner, nothing is more quintessentially American than small-town Texas. His images of these small towns evoke an emotional mix of warmth, desolation, and serenity about small town America.

… but he doesn’t take photographs.

Rod Penner is a painter and he specialized in hyper realism. Each image you see below of quiet suburbs in Texas is actually a painting. (Mind=blown.)

Wow. These really make me miss home… even though I’m not from Texas. There’s something he is able to evoke with this imagery, every single time. Amazing.
