Gathering In Oils on canvas board 5 x 7 inches
Purple quite often finds its way into my paintings. I can see purple in lots of places; skies and clouds, shadows, and of course, flowers. Twilight brings out the purples in my garden making them glow. I cannot grow lavender well in my soil, the plants are always straggly but these rows of lavender are like plump cushions. This is echoed in the sky as storm clouds gather on the horizon.
