If Justin is not interested in the paintings that are any of you want to sell, I'm sure my husband and I would be very interested in seeing them and perhaps purchasing. This would indeed keep the paintings in Dan's family.

Thank you all for your interest and comments!

My husband is Dan Wallace's grandson. Grandpa died a couple or so years before I married Nick. Dan's daughters, Wanda and Martha, still live in the area. The whole family is blessed to have many of his wonderful paintings still, and they are being handed down, generation to generation. This is all very true, that Grandpa painted lying down, although he was unable to lie flat -- he was in a reclining position. He was completely paralyzed, except for his hands and arms; couldn't turn his head. He could, however, move his toes slightly on occasion. We were visiting Nick's family last weekend and his mom told us that all of the beautiful paintings (bluebonnet fields are my favorites) he did very quickly -- in just days. As for the upper portions of the pictures (leaves, sky, etc.) the canvas had to be turned upside down so that he could paint those in. That is amazing to me. I would never detect that the tops were done in a different manner at all. Hope this has helped you.
We have one of Dan Wallace's original paintings. My husband was pastor of faith Memorial Baptist Church in Archer City in the mid 60's and I took some oil painting lessons from Dan. He gave me one of his paintings and it is a prized possession at our house today.

I have some miniatures that appear to be V Wallace. I am from Houston, Texas. Not sure how my husband acquired them, but would love to know if I am just reading the signature wrong. Did he ever paint miniatures?

I believe Dan did paint some miniatures, but he would have signed them either "Wallace" or "D Wallace". Thank you for asking, Lori Thomas.

Hi - I just purchased a D Wallace painting dated '65 from an estate sale in Austin, TX. It is titled in handwriting on the back " 'First Snowfall' or 'Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting'." It's a beautiful snow-covered scene of a cabin with a church in the background at dusk. It caught my eye - it was in the corner behind a door - but I passed at first and left the sale. I couldn't stop thinking about it and went back and got it. Then I found this information!! How exciting to see that the same emotions I felt when I saw this painting are felt by others who experience this man's great talent. This will be a treasured piece.

Hi Sylvia,
I have a painting of a palomino horse near a fence and a willow tree. The artist signature is D. Wallace 1948. Could this be a painting from your Grandfather? I would LOVE to know more about his history. Could you please contact me at [email protected]
