Are you a big time Texas fan? Did you go to a university in Texas and looking for a way to honor your school pride through a unique art piece for your home or office? Look no further. kimmie has created 10 colorful Texas maps based on 10 different university school colors.
- Rice University
- Texas State University
- Baylor University
- University of Texas
- University of Houston
- University of North Texas
- Texas A&M
- Prairie View A&M
- Sam Houston State University
- Texas Tech University
The colleges are not marked on the painting, so some simply like the color combinations of the piece that fill well with their home or office. Some university colors can also represent other sports team. For example, some see the Prairie View painting as LSU colors. Some see Sam Houston State as Houston Astros colors. Some see Texas Tech as Houston Rockets colors.
Using acrylic paint, modeling paste, gold leaf, and abstract lines & patterns, kimmie creates abstract maps of any location such as cities, states, countries, or trails.

Abstract Maps Painting Process
kimmie first identified major highways and roads in the map and ensures those will be within the canvas and sized properly using a projector onto the canvas. Using Frog Tape, the highways and roads are blocks off to prevent any paint from getting on them.
Then, kimmie paints the bases of the map depending on the color preferences using acrylic paint. kimmie designs all types of abstract lines using varying shades of the colors.
Once the base is painted, the Frog Tape is then removed revealing the highway and roads. Using acrylic paint, gold leaf, & modeling paste, those areas are painted.
Original Canvas Too Big or Too Much?
Prints are available for both Houston and Texas maps (if you order a custom piece kimmie will not create prints since you are the sole owner of the artwork created):
What to Expect Upon Arrival
When you receive your canvas in the mail, it will be shipped in a large flat box and padding within to avoid damage to the art. kimmie recommends taking the canvas to a local frame shop to get a custom frame made for hanging the piece.
