Island Lavender

It seems I am always drawn to the furthest painting location from the car.  In search of the densest lavender plants and scenic backdrop, I hike to the back and start painting.  The scent of lavender is all around me, and the buzzing of the bees in and out of their hive entertain me.  An ink drawing confirms my composition as I start laying paint.  I think I'm painting quickly, but in reality the lavender is so relaxing that I slow down the longer I spend in the field!  Instead of finishing three paintings today, I only finish two!   Oh the hazards of mixing plein air and lavender!  Painting number 2018 in 2018 days.
