Off Season__6 x 8 oil__V....Vaughan

"Off Season"__6 x 8 oil on linen panel___$150 if you are first to want it!
Well, the Longhorns are between seasons. That's what I thought of when I saw these two resting, and thought of my favorite sports team, the Texas Longhorns. My family follows them closely, with lots of personal ties to the University...personally, I really like the color and logo for the team :)
Sunday I leave for 20 days of teaching young artists at the Western Art Academy in Kerrville. It is like an art vacation for me: staying on a college campus, all meals prepared, a nice place to stay, and no obligations after 5 pm. I get a lot of personal art done while there, and look forward to finishing my mules and dogs and other commissions. Mainly, I can't wait to meet a couple dozen young artists, and see if I can help them with their painting!

This is lovely! So peaceful and interesting! Love the longhorn and the colours in the background.

Have a good time teaching - I am envious!
