The BOOK includes some groupings of farm paintings that "go together".
(see posts from March 4 and 5).
The "SKY" spread in the book says:
"Oh give me SKY, lots of sky! After 30 years under huge skies, I learned to read them!
The place where the sun came up was not always east, and a certain place on my north-facing deck never saw sun in the wintertime. But, hot summer skies are still my favorite. "Below my studio deck, the farm sloped toward the east to the area I called "The Pens". This area changes the most (with the seasons), so I liked to paint it best. The seasons brought new color and textures, and the cows came and went. Life happened at the pens..."

Project Status: Last Year on the Farm ...-In April, I will return to the farm to paint a LAST DAY, 24 paintings in 24 hours.The series of paintings will be my big "goodbye". I want to do this while Spring is in the air. New life, new growth and all the symbolism of "Life Goes On".
