Roses and Lavender



Welcome. I am so happy that you stopped by. My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and relax with a cup of tea while I share with you the inspirations for my art. The Lavender is in bloom as well as the Roses and Lavender Saliva and bring back memories of time spent in Provence in the South of France where the scent of Lavender is in the air and the sky is blue.


Let's join Bentley, my helpful Studio Assistant, in the garden and look for inspiration for a French welcome sign with Roses and Lavender.

















This is a painting that was inspired by the beautiful Lavender fields in Provence.

Thank you for stopping by. I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits, e-mails, comments and those of you who are following my blog. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special.

Thank you to everyone who visited me for the Where Bloggers Create party.




Have a lovely week. Blessings, Erin

Beautiful.
Our lavender seems to have perished when the new fence was put up. I've replaced it. Hope it grows quickly! xx

I admire your talent. The pink and lavender are so beautiful together. I especially love the girl standing in the garden of colorful flowers.

Gorgeous plant and photos. The scents walking by the lavender and roses must be intoxicating. And you have a lovely Studio Assistant. What type of dog is he?
