Copied Sky

"Copied Sky" from Last Year on the Farm 10-14-2007_____available
Today, Oct. 14, 2008, looked EXACTLY like this sky which I painted EXACTLY a year ago, during my last week on the farm....wow, time flies! I remembered painting this...and all you painters can testify: when you paint "en plein air", something happens that sharpens your memory. You will remember the temperature, the sights and sounds of the day and even the barometric pressure! ...well, almost... Plein air painting WILL HELP YOUR STUDIO WORK....guaranteed!
This Saturday Oct. 18 in Calvert, TX, I will be teaching a small group of about 10 artists all about plein air painting. There is still room for a few more artists! It promises to be a cool morning, full of Kolaches and great painting adventures outside...we have a backup plan inside Sonny Moss' pottery studio (yes, Sonny, I am bringing my wallet!), so come paint with us! e-mail me for details: vvaughan8@yahoo.com

Well I wish I lived nearby ... this sounds fun.

I'm amazed you can paint this from memory. I've been trying to do a little of that but have done rather abstract pieces that to me don't look like much. I'm going to work on it, though, so maybe I'll improve. Sure hope so...
