Oklahoma•Texas•Arkansas Current Issue...
January/February 2019 Issue
The Country Register of Texas and Oklahoma is published every two months. The time seems to fly by between issues.
For those who prefer to read on-line we are now publishing the complete paper here for you on our web site and will leave back issues on as well. How often we have been called and someone has given their paper away or misplaced it and needed the name or location of a shop, a tea room or wanted to know where there was a paper close to them.
The print edition will still be available as usual in each advertising shop and other select rack locations. Some people will always and forever prefer to sit down in a cozy chair with a cup of coffee or tea and read through the paper edition page by page. The younger generations are more apt to go on-line and so we hope to just broaden our readership and bring more customers to the shops because of this extra exposure.
Cover Artist featured in this issue:
Billy Jacobs, a long time resident of Ohio, started his career in the Country Gift Industry in the early 80's as a woodcrafter and designer.
Billy designed as well as manufactured thousands of country and primitive products throughout the 80's and 90's. In the 2000's Billy turned his focus from woodcrafting to painting. His early folky primitive style was well received by his customers. Billy continued to refine his painting style and in late 2006 switched from acrylics to watercolors and began his journey painting the rural American countryside. Since then Billy's artwork has taken the market by storm, his depiction of the simple American lifestyle and days gone by bring a nostalgic comfort to the viewer and have made him one of today's most sought after artists.
