I visited the Meadow of Lavender farm on a hot July day during the Yamhill Lavender Festival and was enchanted by the glass globe in the middle of the labyrinth and varying shades of cream and purple lavender. The carriage was placed in the background so I could create a good composition. I sketched in the canvas in pencil and painted rapidly, racing against the changing shadows. Owner Janna kindly brought me an icy glass of lavender lemonade, which was delicious!
