A visual journey depicting the changing way of life, as family farms disappear from our landscape. This book is an overview of 365 paintings of the artist's "Last Year on the Farm". The multi-generational farm has given way to the urban sprawl of Austin, TX. This is a chronicle of the changing seasons, the movement of life, and weather and how farmland under big skies is always in a state of change. The farm has sold now and development is coming soon. The seasons are changing . . . forever."
