This summer, a friend and I have been on a mission. She saw a photo of a lavender field with Mt. Hood behind it and wanted to go out and photograph it. We found it, in Hood River OR, at Lavender Hill Farm.
When we arrived mid-afternoon, there were low clouds in front of the mountain. My friend wanted absolute clear skies, so we went for a drive and came back a few hours later to find completely clear skies, but I decided I liked the clouds laying low over the mountain in my painting.
. I was hoping to get a little more depth in the lavender and be a little looser in the painting. I am open to all of your suggestions and critiques.

When I posted it, I got my painting, twice, I thought I fixed it by naming the photo something completely different, but now I have 2 photos here. Let's see if this does it.
