Parrot tulips and feeling it

Here's a little painting of parrot tulips that
trained for about a week as closed buds, before
they emerged as these astounding beauties.
 I'm not quite done.  Every time I turn
away for a second they change, and I'm almost
forced to start over.

I feel a new idea coming and it's distracting me
from all the projects I'm working on. Sometimes this
happens and I just have to let that idea roll around
inside my head until I can get it out on canvas.
I think these might be big paintings.  So it's time
to get some big canvas.  You know you'll be the
first to know if the ideas take shape.

Meanwhile Happy March, Month of spring.
Hurray.  Soon my friends in the north with me.

Have a dreaming-ideas-into-being day.
