red parrot tulips finished

all done & in the shop!

These tulips were a joy to paint!  I usually follow my reference  photos
pretty closely, but not this time.  I just had fun painting frilly petals.

I listen to audiobooks while I paint.  This time it was Maeve Binchy's A Week in Winter.
Very enjoyable!

parrot tulips continued

I'm really enjoying painting these parrot tulips!
Two tulips done and one to go.
This will hopefully be my Christmas card this year.
The original painting will be in my Etsy shop after completion.

I was side-lined just a bit with a broken toe & a dying computer. 
Replaced the computer (hooked it up myself and got the tower & all the cords off the floor).
The little toe will mend in a few more weeks.... oh, the hazards of barefoot woodwork painting.

Thanks for stopping by!  I have a lot of blogs to catch up on!
