Painting Lavender with Angelina Octavia Art
In today's episode of The Lavender Podcast I am excited to interview Angelina Octavia who is a self taught painter and teacher who sells her art online and at markets and studios in the Willamette Valley of Oregon.  Her preferred mediums are oil, watercolor, and gouache.  Over the past 10 years while she raised her two babies, as she’d take them out on daily walks and grew a new appreciation for wildlife and plants.  It brings her so much joy to share what she has learned about birds and nature through her art.  She teaches lavender watercolor classes in the summer at Wayward Winds Lavender Farm, as well as lessons at wineries, and private one-on-one or group class.   Visit the show notes at Waywardwindslavender.com to download Angelina's FREE PDF of her botanical lavender print card.  It's pretty enough to frame!  Connect with Angelina online in the following ways: https://www.angelinaoctaviaart.com/ https://www.instagram.com/angelina.octavia.art/ https://www.etsy.com/shop/angelinaoctavia?ref=simple-shop-header-name&listing_id=1007566107  ***I need to make one correction of information from this episode.  We mention the Willamette Valley Lavender Festival and Plein Air Art Show. This festival is always the second full weekend in July and brings together farms, vendors, and artists. Find out more information at Chehalem Cultural Center’s website .
