Two of the visitors to the Farmers’ Market recently were a woman named Josie and her mother, who was visiting from California.  They fell in love with a couple of my one-hour studies, Lovin’ the Lavender, and Purple Passion (an impression of the Russian Sage which has bloomed wonderfully here this summer.  Alas, I did not get a scan of it.)  They also saw a small watercolor on canvas (4″ x 4″) of pink roses, and wanted a painting of hydrangeas as a companion piece to go with it.
