30 Paintings in 30 Days #9 Study of Abbey Senanque

Study of Abbey Senanque


Abbey Senanque rests at the foot of a gorge near the perched town of Gordes in the Luberon, Provence. The working monastery harvests and sells their local crop of lavender to help support the abbey. It's a spectacular site in June when the lavender is in full bloom. The aroma is equally as magnificent. This was painted as a demo for the guests at the chateau retreat for artists. But it was left unfinished until today, when I completed it for this challenge. 

The linen panel was bought in Avignon and the size is almost 8" x 8". Probably 20cm x 20cm.

Oil on Mounted Linen Panel. 8" x 8" (20cm x 20cm)
