“The Scent of Lavender”
8 x 8in oil on museum quality panel

Sometimes you just have to stop and smell the lavender.

Can one overdose on lavender???

I’m not sure—however, I think if it is possible…that it would be one heck of a  way to go:))
P.S.  A petite heart shaped  sachet of lavender gathered from the field in the painting will be included:))

I will be adding to this story for the next few days–my trip to Lavender Land.  To read about all the fragrant details and delights of lavender, wine, cats, gardens, lavender, and lavender with some additional lavender notes, just click here:))  Did I mention it involved lavender???

    I love your technique Dreama. Beautiful painting! A friend brought me a lavender spray from France when she traveled there. Nothing else like it!ReplyCancel

    oh yeah! Dreama, that’s so true, the hum of the bees drunk on lavender, the fragrance, the warmth of the CA sun, it’s such a multi-sensory thing being in the middle of those rows….(and I love the memory of this)ReplyCancel

    I think we have some lavender lovers in this group of comments:)) Thanks so much for the good words. Carrie–love the “scratch and sniff” painting analogy:))

    If I could just figure out how to add sound—the hum of the bees working the lavender field was amazing!!!ReplyCancel
