"Last Year on the Farm - Winter Day 9 pm"
HEre's some recent news!!!
I have been out in AZ teaching a workshop and attending a couple of shows….here is the news:
1. At the Phippen Museum Show in Prescott, AZ, I received an “Emerging Artist” award from Southwest Art Magazine, for my body of work.. They were really excited about my Farm Series and my “drive-by” paintings…I will get a ½ page ad in an upcoming issue. http://www.phippenartmuseum.org/events/awards.html
2. Raymar awarded my painting “9 PM” as a finalist in their competition for the month of April http://www.raymarart.com
3. Society of Master Impressionists awarded a Sorg Easel http://www.studioeasel.com/contact.html at their show in Amarillo….a merit award with a prize…
4. I was selected to paint at the San Louis Obispo Plein Air event in October http://www.sloartcenter.org/events.htm
5. Local Workshop. Williamson County Art Center. July 13th, 14th and 15th, Friday evening 5-8 p.m., Saturday Time, TBA, Sunday 2-6 p.m …This will be plein air and I will be teaching How to Capture It FAST….we will start with a “Chicken Clinic” on Friday, and do a “Seven Stroke” painting, too…GREAT PRICE $150 contact :Art Center of Williamson County 512-248-8690 acwc@earthlink.net My workshops contain a lot of laughs, so I hope you can come!!!

6. MOST IMPORTANTLY…MARK SEPTEMBER 15 on your calendars…I want EVERYONE to come say goodbye to the farm with me, as I “unveil” all the farm paintings . I am framing and hanging them now on our walls which will be emptied of everything else, soon. I will send out formal invites, but want y’all to be the first to know…We will leave the farm as soon as we find a house…looking, looking….THANK YOU to all of you who have been painting out here and coming to the frame sales…one of the things I am thinking about that will make this loss bearable is getting to be more active with PAA…I will need places to paint…right now I am such a home
"Last Year on the Farm" paintings will be offered for sale in a few months, when our last year is up. Please ask me if you want a copy of the story. If you see one you like, PLEASE CONTACT V....Vaughan to have first shot at it. A list is underway....my kids get first pick...
