Lavender , 9 X 7

It's a sure thing now, I'll be having a solo show at a popular restaurant next March. Years ago I would had been in a rush to start painting but I'm actually fixing some paintings that I did on location this summer. Somehow it doesn't feel right to start new work when there are paintings begging to be finished. This also gives me time to think what I would like to paint from the tons of reference photos I have, and hopefully a theme will emerge.

This painting is from Lockwood Farm in Skaneateles. By chance, this past spring I learned that there was a lavender farm in the area and without waiting too long I contacted the owner, Karen, who very gracefully invited me to paint at the farm. She also has sheep, and a very friendly barn cat who almost knocked my pastel box when he jump on it! Check out her blog and enjoy the beautiful photographs.

Congrats on the upcoming solo show - that's exciting! I love lavender and anything to do with lavender and this is a really nice painting!

Thank you Donna! I do not know if it's the color or something else, but I love lavender too. Maybe we can go to Provence together just to paint lavender someday!

I recently visited a Lavender Farm on Long Island. I love the smell, and color of the lavender plant. Very therapeutic!! Great painting!
