    Dan, I’ve written you before and I’ll tell you again , I admire and enjoy your work so much. I live in Colorado and have a admiration for old barns and wagons. I mostly photograph them and I aspire to paint them too. When I was little I lived with my crippled great uncle who was an artist .Glen Coston, son of Daniel Coston. He was a great inspiration to me. You are in inspiration to me as well. I will never be a great artist like you but it gives me pleasure to paint and someday maybe someone will admire my work too.LeeAnn

    1. LeeAnn, first, the Glen Coston, son of Daniel Coston is interesting as my father was a Daniel Coston. I’m a “junior”. I will have to ask my Mom, who is 87, if I am related in any way. Thanks for your kind remarks. I will be finishing a group of paintings for a show at the Cantrell Gallery in Little Rock, AR. It opens Mar 8th and we will get the work on my website around then. Best, Daniel

  8. Will you have any Mt Zion paintings at the Cantrell exhibit in March? I went to church there with my grandparents as a child and have family buried in the cemetery as well.

    1. Tammy…there will be one Mt. Zion in my show. It is 6×16 inches and the view is looking north. It is a small piece and the church is very small within the painting. My wife says she can send you a picture/e-mail so you can see the painting. That would have to be tonight; she’s off to JBHunt right now. I believe you have contacted me before. You worked for Boeing if I remember correctly. I did not get the Mt. Zion painting done that I had planned but Helen at the Cantrell Gallery always says, “Be sure and do a Mt. Zion!” Last I heard there was one Mt. Zion painting left over from last year…but I’ll have to check about that. Best, Daniel

  9. Mr Coston,

    I am inquiring about a pen and ink you created several years ago of a cafe/store on UAM (A &M) that my grandparents, Van and Eula Mae Cruce, owned. There is one hanging in the administration building and I know Dan and Charlotte Hornaday have one as well. I would like to purchase two for my brother and myself.

    Would you please email with details on how to possibly purchase copies of this piece?
    Thank you!

    Lee Anne Tumlison
