I signed up for this years Lavender Paintout months before finding out I needed surgery on my hand. As luck would have it that happened right before the competition began. I worked small and did manage to finish a couple pieces. This is one of them. Prior to participating in the competition I had no idea there are over 150 varieties of lavender. The bloom season was delayed by the extended cool weather we were having so the fields weren't quite in bloom until the end of the competition.
