This is another attempt to capture that wonderful acre of batchelor buttons that we saw in our stroll around Oxford. We saw the title of the field, "God's Acre" was on a hand-painted sign on the well a bit behind my view here.

We're harvesting again today for the hungry, and rewarding our volunteers with a light salad lunch. We'll be talking about herbs and using them in cooking - so we'll all make some lemon balm tea and lavender cookies.

Hope your day is grand!

Lovely country scene with the bright blue flowers against the old buildings. And by the way, the roof on the old building is incredibly well done! It's so neat the way you combine the realistic with the splashy impressionistic. Your own style and I love it.
Hugs,
Lorraine

This one is lovely!!! It is such a great painting of a rural country scene! Great job on the building. I want to be there painting that scene.

We have warm weather and sunshine...so a plein air day is on tap for me!! Have a great day!
