Monte Amiata

Monte Amiata, Tuscany

I’m tidying up my studio and trying to make space for older, as well as my new paintings within it … my space now seems a bit limited!
I feel this painting, in particular, makes little sense here in France “profonde” and it could only be someone who knows Tuscany and M.Amiata who could possibly appreciate it. So, like an early “summer sale”, this is reduced from my London price to €200 (not including P&P)
If anyone in Montisi would like it, I can bring it over in September when I come back again for a week at the end of the month.

Lavender painting

Getting ready to paint!

I’ve been looking forward to our time in Provence to stay with very good friends and very excited on arrival to see the lavender fields in full bloom around the house 🙂


My first glorious morning in the lavender

Since it was our holiday there were many things we needed to do together, which meant my painting time was short and the weather also wasn’t brilliant … a very cold wind blew for a few days and it was also rather gloomily cloudy some of the time.

I had chosen very small painting boards (18cm x 25cm) so it would be possible to finish something reasonably quickly and it was heaven to stand in the midst of lavender with the perfume wafting over me, with the thrum of many, very happy bees.

Stormy weather

Lavender, Cypress trees and the coming storm
