Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

One of my favourite places to visit is the plateau of Clansayes in Drôme Provençale. In between the garrigue, the shrubland composed of a mix of kermes oaks, box tree and aromatic plants such as juniper, thyme and wild lavender, there are open cultivated areas with fields of lavender, vineyards, wheat and einkorn that allow the eye to travel to the distant hills.
On windy days, the mistral can really whip across the land.
The clouds billow and move by at a pace. On the land, cereal crops catch the light as they dance in the wind in a staccato fashion while at other times, a gust forces the shafts to bend and create a wave that runs across the field as they spring back up moments later.
In this painting, I tried to capture this fleeting choreography of light and wind.
