"Lavender Rest" original oil painting by Laura Reilly

"Lavender Rest" 
8" x 8" x 3/8" original oil on gessoed panel, 
painting continues around sides for a beautiful finish.

This is another painting from my Lavender Fields  series - 

 Paola's young nieces were taking a little break from their work harvesting the fragrant blooming lavender - they looked so charming I had to paint them - but waited til now, when the memory of the sun and warmth and fragrance could warm the winter studio!
