Luscious Lavender Rows

5"x7" oil on gessoed archival panel

"With immediacy and intensity, smell activates the memory, allowing our minds to travel freely in time." -Tom Robbins

Along with plein air works, I had brought home some 'souvenirs' of my visit to Keys Creek Lavender Farm (in Valley Center, CA). It's true, the fragrance will bring back such wonderful memories. Rows of lavender, sweeping and waving in the soft breeze bring such delight. I was so attracted to the 'abstractness' of this view, I now have a larger painting in the works with this view!

For more information regarding this painting, contact me here.

Love this and makes me homesick for CA. I took Kathleen Elsey's workshop in Sonoma in Oct., and we painted in the vineyards and lavender fields.

Thanks so much Jerry! Yes, whenever I think of these lavender fields (among other things) I do miss southern CA...especially when it's winter up north! It's such a beautiful area, I'm glad I got to live there for a while!
