Hello Yellow

The canola fields near Mountaindale were a brilliant, almost surreal yellow in mid June when I visited with some plein air pals. Canola is related to the mustard plant and has similarly hued flowers, and the "heart healthy" oil is derived from it. Next to the blue sky, hills and green trees, the yellow was a treat for my artist eyes.

Now I'm painting lavender and planting my garden for future paintings of luscious veggies and sunflowers.
