First Tulip of Spring

posted in: Recent Work | 0

I’m really excited about how this one turned out. Can you see all the wet on wet work in the petals? I felt the spirit moving through me as I painted, dropping paint in and watching it as it flowed into the patterns that drew me to this flower in the first place. I took the photo for this painting at Bush Park in Salem, Oregon and it was the first tulip of early March, cool and damp in the morning sun.
