Lovely Lavender, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones


Lovely Lavender

Lovely Lavender was inspired from my travels to southern France last year. The lavender blooms were at their peak and the perfect time to visit.  We travelled with Scott Williams and Niki Gulley of Art Treks.  They know all the hot spots and are great host to the area.
