Oh!!! Fantastic perspective!!! I can SMELL that lavender....

Lovely composition, JJ

I am so overtaken by those precious blues and lavenders and yellow-greens!!!!!!!! So Lovely!!! Thank-you!

Julian - this is just delicious! and the diagonal really grabs the eye and plays tricks with it - luv the way the lavender blends together into a violet blanket. Am continually amazed at how you can paint such 'large' feeling landscapes on such a small panel.

A slowing lake of Lavender
Is intoxicated by its own heady fragrances
And seems to topple over...
The landscape gardener does not realize
What he misses:
Today for the first time
He forgot to awaken.
His windows are closed.
He is sounding asleep;
Close to his Darling.
They are waiting for a happy event:
They will call her: " Lavande ".

Sorry, not " slowing " but " sloping ".

I was in your lovely country for the first time in April. Sadly, I was
too early for the lavender. Thanks you for these lovely paintings.
I am loving your landscapes so much lately.
