Essence of Lavender
About this artwork
While the artist painted this scene from life, the aroma of lavender filled the studio. The atmosphere seemed to calm the storms of the day, Pamela recalls. She loosely interpreted the charming disarray of a lavender bunch with free and energetic strokes, while using clarity and contrast to create a focal point of the soothing reflections of light on the water in the glass pitcher. The eye is drawn through chaos to the calm. This painting is on linen mounted on board and will need a frame for display.
