This painting was made during the Sonoma Plein Air Workshop at Matanzas Creek Winery. They have over 4ooo lavender plants and many olive trees. That is Sonoma Mountain in the left background. I used to live on Sonoma mountain and I loved to visit Matanzas Creek Winery in the early morning to paint their beautiful vineyards, lavender and olives. I still return to Sonoma once or twice a year to paint that beautiful county.
