lavender fields



last month i visited snowshill lavender fields

once again it was harvest time...
in fact the very last field was being harvested....

luckily the test planting area was still uncut




and there was an added bonus this year


i was looking at the photos and my sketches because i wanted to paint lavender today...

but maybe i want to paint sunflowers...
oh decisions decisions...
i'll go to the studio and see what happens

...or maybe roses...
i am listening to this

Gorgeous, Sally ... lavender or sunflowers... now that is a dilemma.. sometimes the hardest part about art is narrowing down the subject matter.. looks like you have lots of inspiration!
