Artist: D.C. Kim “Serene Flow” oil on canvas 48”x 72” $6,600
Recently the Boerne JR Mooney Gallery has acquired an impressive canvas by Korean artist, D.C. Kim who specializes in creating a world of vivid colorful landscapes that go beyond the viewer’s expectation.
He has once again dazzled us with his sublime handling of color and light in this stunning painting entitled, “Serene Flow.” It definitely has to be seen in person to appreciate the effect this painting’s massive scale has on the eye, with dimensions measuring at 4 feet by 6 feet. The future collector will need to be willing to dedicate a considerable amount of wall space to fully optimize the presence of this painting’s beauty. A large scale work of art is a commitment that should not be taken lightly but in the right dedicated home environment it will be a window to a tranquil oasis that will bring the solace of nature into your home for many years to come.
“A Lazy Pond,” is another painting by DC Kim that features the trademarked stillness and delicate colors that are balanced with accents of intense resplendent fuchsia water lilies that are gracefully growing up from within the still waters of the pond, reflecting the sky and subtle glowing mist. A bit more understated than “Serene Flow” with its captivating crimson leaves falling into the azure waters below,
“A Lazy Pond” has a lighter, more soothing airy palette, but is nonetheless a statement that is another impeccable example of D.C. Kim’s skill of rendering detailed foliage and atmospheric depth in the natural surroundings.
“Serene Flow” and “A Lazy Pond” are both available at JR Mooney Galleries, Boerne. Come by and visit to view these wonderful artworks in person.

Jack White, “All You Need, Hombre”,
3 serigraphs, 4” x 5”
Custom framing done by
J.R. Mooney Galleries- Boerne Staff
Jack White is a quintessential Texas artist whose painting career accelerated quickly from a modest start to being a top contender in the arts field as a portrait painter. His commissions include luminaries such as President Lyndon Johnson, Pat Robertson, Tom Landry and other notable Texas political and sports figures.
His art career was unexpectedly placed on hiatus due to injury from an auto accident. In order to deal with the pain of not painting; he turned his focus to writing, authoring self help art marketing books geared towards struggling artists and Texas historical fiction.
Mr. White’s accolades and honors include being awarded Texas state artist in 1975 and receiving lifelong membership to the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame.
“All You Need, Hombre” is a collaboration of the staff at J.R. Mooney Galleries-Boerne, who handpicked this selection of three Jack White Enchruseos for their subject matter that symbolize the classic Texas cowboy necessities to be custom framed, highlighting their rustic uniqueness. Enchruseo (pronounced Ek-Crus-os) is a method of adhering gold leaf to the back of plexiglass/glass that has been hand printed with a black ink serigraph print. This method was invented by Jack White during the 1970’s.
He chose the name “Enchruseo” from a combination of Greek words ek (out of) crus (gold) and ous (having been done) which combined means ‘out of gold having been done.’ His last Enchruseo was produced in 1978.
"All You Need, Hombre" is currently at $250.00
J.R. Mooney Galleries has an inventory of various small scale Enchruseos available for sale. Be sure to stop by the Boerne gallery location for a unique opportunity to own a one of a kind art piece by a true Texas original.
