The Bluebonnet Abstract and Title Company is displaying a painting with historical significance in its lobby.

The Chappell Hill Historical Society loaned them a painting by local artist, Reverend Johnnie Swearingen.

The Bluebonnet Abstract and Title Company is located in the former Brenham Guardian Savings and Loan building in downtown Brenham.

The painting, which is signed by the Reverend Swearingen, reflects the exterior of the building in 1970 where two flags wave in opposite directions at the forefront and people march blatantly past the bank.

Swearingen was a beginning artist early in life and used various types of paint and materials to complement his paintings.

His paintings were purchased by Mr. and Mrs. Don Austin of Chappell Hill. After Mr. Austin’s death, his wife donated the paintings to the Chappell Hill Historical Society in 1990.

Swearingen is known for painting both the physical and spiritual worlds in which he lived, making the Chappell Hill collection a treasured historical document and earning him recognition as an important Texas folk artist.
