Last Year on the Farm 07-21-2007 Accepting First Dibs
My computer problems are more severe than expected, so the timing for these notes will be irregular for a time…sigh….I have learned to NOT delete things in the computer which have names you never heard of….sometimes there are IMPORTANT things there that make other things work…
Sunday morning was foggy. Very unusual for July. I painted THREE little ones before church, when the sun finally brought light and color to the farmscape.
Did I tell you we have a new house in Round Rock?…not TOO far from here.
Our last day on the farm will be the 31 of October, and for the whole month of October, this farm house will be my “gallery” for the “Last Year on the Farm” paintings….365 total
I hope you will make plans to come view them all some time that month…I will send a more “formal” invitation pretty soon.

"Late Spring 24 Last Year___9pm New Moon"
I dedicate this painting to my High School classmates (Class of 1977)...see yesterday's post about why...
For my latest round of "24 paintings in 24 hours", I painted a "Late Spring Day Last Year on the Farm"....a few weeks ago, on the last week of Spring.This is looking east at sunset with the crescent moon over our nearby neighborhood....there is something very intriguing about sunset and a new moon...it seems to speak of eternal things like life and death and even hope...
I dedicate this today, because we had a memorial service this morning to honor the families and memory of our friends who have died since high school. What a wonderful time of memory and reflection...just the right kind of church service that brings hope and makes you THINK about your own life and it's "finish"...I saw many hearts touched this morning, including my own,...I would love to hear your comments...sorry for the unusually lengthy note :)
God Bless you!!!
"Last Year on the Farm" paintings are documenting my last year where I have lived most my life, near Austin, TX. These 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 a first dibs shot at it. A list is underway....my kids get first pick! ;)

"Moonrise over Cove Harbor" 6 x 8 oil on linen $200
We started our workshop day at 6 am, meeting at Cove Harbor near Rockport, TX, and ended with the moonrise at the same location. In between we painted near the art center. The small group of painters were experienced and willing to work the 15 hour day! What a blast we had, even dining with the mice! I will post more of the paintings this week.
