When Elio Camacho comes to Oregon he always extends an "open invitation" to paint with him during non-workshop times. An extra bonus! Today I joined Elio (and Susan, Bev, Jan & Karen) at Willakenzie Lavender Farm near Yamhill. I painted for awhile next to a distilling contraption that was extracting oil from lavender. In between paintings we paid the Lavender shop a visit where I tried on an Alpaca fur hat and I bought some lavender soap. Elio's Gorge workshop starts on Monday. I'll be ready!
