First to Spring

"First to Spring"______6x8_________$150 to the first one to ask!
At exactly this time last year, I was driving back from teaching in Rockport, and as the fog cleared over this farm, I stopped to snap a few pictures...The grass is the first to spring. Pecan trees will be the last hold-outs of winter. That's what I see in this painting.
This is my first spring away from our farm, but I will go out there to paint one LAST DAY there in April. I will sell the paintings in a special way, so please stay tuned.
Something new for me: I will get to watch spring emerge on a friend's farm (ranch?) this year. She has asked me to paint her place, so, on Thursday, I will go take a look and introduce myself to some land that is just as special to someone else as my farm was to me.
I will try to re-order soon. If you want one from the first printing e-mail me right away :)
