IT’S IN THE AIR………….
Maybe, if we really try, we can see a little glimmer of Fall in the changing colors of the leaves. The weather is still very warm and humid, but maybe, just maybe, we will feel a little drop in temperature soon.
In my part of Texas, Fall is “in the air.” One of the best indications that Fall is coming is when my husband, Jeff, starts talking more about “working puppies,” good prices on shotgun shells and getting a new hunting license. We’re filling up game feeders, rigging trucks and well, doing all the other things we do to get ready for hunting season.
As an artist, this time of year kicks me into high gear. I love painting the landscape “en plein air”. I love painting hunters, dogs, deer, ponds, creeks, mesquite trees and cactus. I’ve ordered new canvases, new paints, new brushes and I’m patiently waiting for a little cool breeze and then I’ll be out there.
I’m very excited that one of my paintings—THE STAKEOUT, will be a live auction item at the annual banquet for the
SOUTH TEXAS CHAPTER OF QUAIL COALITION

All of the proceeds from the sale go toward conservation and management of Texas wildlife.
Also, check out my blog at www.pammarkham.com. I have posted an interview with RONNIE HOWARD, who is beginning his 40th year as the Hunting Camp Manager of the SAN TOMAS CAMP on the Encino Division of the KING RANCH.
