Becker Vineyards - Lavender

Becker Vineyards - Lavender
Oil on Linen

Surprise! The bloggy gremlins played with my new lavender painting and transported it BACK IN TIME on the blog the other day. I tinkered with the buttons and fixed it! *patting self on back*

This little painting was supposed to appear today, so here it is, once again, Becker Vineyards Lavender. I visited Becker Vineyards 2 weeks ago when I traveled to Fredericksburg, Texas, to drop off some new works for the Good Art Company Gallery. I've always been interested in the vineyard, since my maiden name is Becker and my family is German. Fredericksburg is a historical German settlement and it's fun to drive through town and see all the interesting German family owned businesses there.

I plan on packing up the hubby and puggies next month and traveling down south to visit, hoping that the poppy fields and lavender will be in full bloom at Becker Vineyards. I promise to get lots of pictures and take you along for the trip!

I love your florals and landscapes. They're so soft and invite me to gaze for a while. The collage is fantastic. I'd like to give it a try.

Lavender fields are beautiful.
I was there at the Becker Vineyards for a workshop but the lavender wasn't in bloom at that time.

Love the lavendar, too. I can almost smell it. But your sunflowers are my absolute favorite in the other posts. They make me happy! Happy St. Paddy's day to ya'll!!
