Katy Artist Creates 'Road Trip' Art Series

You can’t experience a Texas road trip without stopping at Buc-ees! Now Katy’s Wayne Kerr, a multi-recording Christian artist and worship leader at Grace Fellowship Church has created the ultimate art series for the iconic Texas store, a “Road Trip” series.


His art series is now for sale at Buc-ees and Junk Gypsy.


“it’s super fun to be able to partner with these two amazing Texas companies,” says Wayne Kerr, who explains that this journey began over a year ago.


Never Give Up

“This should also be a reminder that sometimes things go much slower than you wish they would, but to not give up,” says Kerr.


The whole partnership began when Buc-ees saw a painting that Kerr had done for the cover of the Round Top Antique Wees Magazine. The painting was of an old blue truck with a bunch of antiques in the back.


“The folks at Buc-ees started carrying prints of it at just a couple of their stores in Central Texas,” says Kerr. “Then last June, they contacted me about brainstorming an idea for a possible road trip series which would involve an old red truck full of fun things that they carry in their store…there’s an old red truck at each of their locations!”


COVID Cancelations Paved the Way Towards More Art

While COVID caused so much heartache around the world in suffering. So many events were canceled. Kerr saw many music festivals, book tour events, art events all canceled. However, this did give him more time to devote to other projects such as artwork for Buc-ees.
