Lavender Fields

It is snowing here today in Edmonton... a dusting of white accumulating on the ground. I am not ready for winter.
All the more reason to post another landscape of the lavender fields we visited on Salt Spring Island. The sun was warming up this hill side of undulating lavender plants. The chubby mounds still had a dusting of purple flowers, creating an enchanting rolling rhythm of purple notes interspersed with green spaces... visual music. Some sequences of colour appeared to suggest an adagio and some an allegro. (Imagination helps...)

8x10 oil on canvas (needs some drying time)
