The best reason to sign up to receive my painting as an e-mail every day is this....sometimes there is a "bug" with the blogger photo posting...like today....I was not able to put this up till just now! Sign up at right, and you'll get an e-mail with just the picture every day...view it and toss!!!
I Painted this on April first last year…I post it today as an early HAPPY BIRTHfoolsDAY to my friend Jeff!!!.Look at the difference in the grass! On March 25 I posted the same scene painted this year…much greener! You can compare the two by scrolling down...

I just LOVE this painting…I just HATE this photo! My nice digital camera broke…I can’t get a new one until I sell a few more paintings. This one will ship to South Carolina as soon as it dries…a commission for some nice folks out there….I hope they like “Sally”

This was March 13 2006....about the time I started painting our "Last Year on the Farm" seriously...It is fun to compare the seasons...these trees are only just turning green THIS week, but last year they were fully "leaved"...The greens are getting BRILLIANT after all the lightning storms we had this week!

Look how GREEN it gets QUICKLY this time of year! I went back in my files to see what it looked like 2 years ago! Ah, the COWS!! If you remember, they were taken away on Jan 29th this year...Yesterday Nancy and Bobby, (Our aunt and uncle who do the real farming here) were beginning the work of taking down all the fences between the pastures and houses....I miss the cows.

“Last Year on the Farm – March 13, 2007 ” © V….Vaughan
The sun literally peeked through while on the way up….for about 30 seconds. When it did, this fog ABSOLUTELY swamped me, even though I stand about 15 feet up on my studio deck. It was incredible!! Hey Pat H.!!! Do you remember the time we painted on the Conejos and the same thing happened? When the sunlight hits a little bit of fog, it becomes a LOT of fog!
I am teaching a one day Saturday Workshop in Rockport, TX this Sat. Let’s caravan on Friday if you are going from Austin! Drop me a line firstname.lastname@example.org

"Last Year on the Farm 03-11-2006" oil 6 x 8
I began this series of our "Last Year on the Farm" last year at about this time....so, from now on, I will be filling in the days I missed. Our time here is really winding down now. We have a date in mid-April, for the developers to close the deal with us. Then we will be seriously looking for another place. So, if any of you know of a nice little spot of land in the Central Texas area that needs to be painted....let me know! We will probably be here through the hot summer months, which is my very favorite time to paint the farm. If you are new to my blog and want to know the story of "Last Year on the Farm" just e-mail me!

"Emerging Green"______________6 x 8
As I sized and filed this in my computer, I noticed that the upcoming week is the "anniversary" of when I started painting the farm daily ....one year ago I put together over a week of daily paintings of the farm and decided that I would paint our "Last Year on the Farm". Since then I have painted it over 200 times and started posting them on this blog in October. You can see many as you hunt back through the archives. I will fill in the mising days in the upcoming months....as well as painting another series of 24 in 24 hours "Spring Day Last Year on the Farm " will be in late March/early April....
Soon I will be offering them for sale....many friends have already asked me to put their name on the back and to let htem know when it becomes available....I will be showing as many as I can in the upcoming "Last Months" on the farm, so stay tuned!

"Caro's in February" 6 x 8 available
The same view I have painted several times before....From Caros back yard looking over Copano Bay. The water that morning was GREEN in the distance! I said that yesterday's was my favorite Rockport painting from the weekend...this one might be, really :)
MAry and Stewart took me Oyster Fishing out in this bay....I finished shucking the 10 gallons of oysters last night....wow, what an experience....we even floated past a trio of whooping cranes! I got some great pictures...
I will be posting farm paintings again in a couple days....the seasons are changing FAST and it's very noticeable...
