Like Buttonwillow, you may be wondering what I've been up to lately.
I'm taking a little break from custom portraits during July and August, but I've got a few other projects up my sleeve. Such as making this small army of kitty corsage brooches. Just where are they all marching off to?
The Yamhill Lavender Festival in the Oregon countryside! Come visit me at my booth this weekend where I will be selling lavender sachets, catnip toys and much more!
This very AROMATIC festival takes place in the charming town of Yamhill, Oregon, in Beulah Park just off Hwy 47 on the corner of Hemlock Street and 3rd Street. There will be a plein air art show, arts and crafts booths, plant sales, food, music, and lavender in every imaginable form. Many local lavender farms will be opening their gates and giving tours.
The luscious art on the postcard above is a pastel painting by well-known regional artist Susan Day (not to be confused with Susan Faye!). For more information about the festival, visit Yamhill Lavender Festival
