Lavender and Wheat, Late Afternoon, Provence

I'm packing up oils and watercolors, getting ready for my trip to Provence tomorrow. Hard to believe that on Saturday I'll be seeing the blue Luberons rather than the Green Mountains from my studio window.

Thank you, Altoon. So far, students, weather and landscape are all great--and jet lag is waning!
