and his family live on a small ranch in the historical community
of Norse, near Clifton, Texas. The artist's studio is on the
edge of a hill out behind the house. From there, large north
windows offer Bruce a continuous view of the Texas Hill Country,
a few Hereford cows and the occasional whitetail deer. "It
is a wonderful blessing to be able to make a living for my family,
doing what I love in this beautiful place," says Greene.
years ago, Bruce began making annual trips to join in the "spring
work" on the great, old JA Ranch in the Palo Duro Canyon
of north Texas. He says, "I go up there and stay on the
chuck wagon with the JA hands and the neighbors that have come
to help. We ride a lot of miles in rough country. It can be

in one day. A fella could get lost in some of the mesquite or
cedar thickets. The JA trip has been a real inspiration for
me each year. I am absolutely certain that this experience has
greatly affected my artwork. My good friend, Red Steagall, calls
it 'getting the dust in your nose.' For me, that dust makes
all the difference."
