Clancey's paintingsElaine Atkinson
I have 3 original paintings by Clarence Jr. and one print from the portfolio he did of 4 scenes of the Texas Tech campus. Each has a funny story behind it, but they are probably too long to impart here. One is a sandstorm, one is a New Mexico Indian village and the third is a portrait of Tom Alexander, the manager of the Tech campus in Junction, Texas.
AskART needn't worry about my wanting to sell the paintings or the print. I wouldn't part with these treasures for anything.
Clarence Kincaid, JrTrudy Lemburg
It is important to differentiate between Clarence Sr. and Clarence Jr. who was the professor at Texas Tech. All the paintings I have by Clarence Sr. are signed as such. Also, Clarence Sr. generally painted in oil and Clarence Jr. in watercolor. I know that Clarence Sr. often painted the Palo Duro Canyons,where the "Lighthouse monument" stands, near Canyon Texas. In the 1950's Clarence Sr.lived in Canyon. Dr. Kincaid would have been teaching in Lubbock, Texas by then. So I am saying that if it is an oil, it is more likely the work of Clarence,Sr. than Dr. Kincaid. As to the value, I have never had any of my paintings by Clarence, Sr. appraised, but have seen then go at auction for a couple of thousand dollars.

information on artistRichard McGovern
Dr. Clarence Kincaid was my painting instructor at Texas Tech in the early 1960's. He taught both art education and watercolor classes. He was a superb water colorist and instructor.Once I graduated in 1966, I left the West Texas area, and lost track of his career.I am certain that anyone wanting further information could contact the Texas Tech University School of Art and get it. He was very well known and liked.
