Lay Down Your Tulips - SOLD

Click Here to Bid

After yesterday's post I got several emails asking if I had painted the split and curling stem. I did think about it, but while it was very cool, it wasn't terribly paintable. To help assuage your profound dissapointment, here is a larger painting I did recently from a photo I took in St. Augustine last year:

Love your approach to the tulip - & you nailed it. So loose. Nice bits of your base tint poke through here and there.

Makes me believe Spring is nearly here... Your little paintings are my daily gift. Thanks!

Very believable figures. I think it's hard to avoid making figures look stiff, but you certainly did it here. Nice composition too.

I agree with Layne, Your people look so real, and genuine.

did I neglect to say that this is incredible? Evidently I did.
It's so fabulous!! Right up there with Karin J. Nuance and facial expression extraordinaire!!
