'Roadside Lavender' 8x10 pastel
I hope my friends Jayne and Holly will remember this place. We stumbled on it on our road trip out west last summer. We were somewhere in Kansas and saw a sign for a lavender farm so naturally we made the detour. We had to go down several dirt roads and it was hot and dusty. When we arrived at the location no one was there and there was a very small overgrown field with some not so happy lavender plants...nothing was in bloom. We took some photos and there were some great dragonflies...but the detour was a bust. One of the great things about painting though is the opportunity to make something out of nothing. I took my photo of the sad lavender field and brought it back to life! This painting is 8x10 on Canson.
