Lavender Fields



Lavender Fields - Pastel 8 x 10 - SOLD

For the last few years, I have had the pleasure of organizing painting trips to Provence with artist friends and students. I look forward to these trips every summer and this year was no exception as a small group of us headed to the beautiful Drôme Provençale.  

The lavender was in full bloom a couple of weeks early, a sure sign of climate warming, but always a real treat for visitors and painters. This scene is from the lavender fields of Grignan
