30 Days of Art: Day 8 (Flower’s Parade)

30 days of art






These tulips fascinated me. When we were living in Seattle, WA tulips were an early spring flower and you could get armloads of them at the Pike Place Market for $15. Steve brought these ones home for me one day and I was captivated because they were purple. Not quite the soft purple they are here in the painting but a deep dark violet. They also were had the pretty frilly edges – so I had to photograph them and save them for another day – almost two years later.

It is a break in the colours I’ve been using but I couldn’t resist the cool colours.
