8"x6" Oil on canvas

I picked this bunch of lavender when I was out walking, I love the perfume of it and it lasts for days! Instead of putting it in a vase, I left it on my table and painted it as it was. I have been working on larger work and have got a little behind with my daily paintings. I used a palette knife as well as a brush. I definitely need a lot more practice but loved using violet and green together too!


  1. We have a lot of lavender in our yard, but it's not blooming yet. Love this and can't wait for mine to bloom to fill my house with the fragrance and my inspire my creativity like you! Thanks for posting.

    1. Thanks Sharon..I often have it in a vase it too!

  2. I don't know about needing more practice Karen. It's a lovely painting.
    I agree, violet and green looks great together.
