new painting

White Tulip Bouquet

Finally finished & I'm happy with the painting.  
It's a commission for a wonderfully patient buyer.
The white tulips are from photos of Longwood Gardens in the spring.
I love their beds of tulips, grouped by color and jammed with flowers.

I started this one 3 times! 
First time I ruined it and started again right away.  The second time I ruined it, 
I had a very hard time starting again.  Third time was the charm for me.

Hope everyone had a lovely holiday.
Wishing all of you a happy, healthy and peaceful New Year!

  4. Your white tulips are gorgeous! White flowers, and especially tulips, are a challenge to paint, but I've come to recognize you are the master of white flowers! Impressive with the blue and white vase.
