Lavender Fields, Sequim, Bohoy pastel

Lavender Fields forever.
A little bit of Provence on an island off of Seattle- a town called Sequim.
Mounds of purple, lavender, blues and violets line up on the farms like soldiers ready for battle to clean and permeate the air with its herbal, sweet scent. 
[The name comes from lavandus a Latin word that means to wash and its aromatherapy properties soothe one's head, body and soul.]
It did.

Pastel, 8x10, $150.
