What grabs you?

These tulips caught my eye today, and I wanted to get
something down about them before tomorrow, when they'll
wilt, and fall, and it will be all over.

So this is a sketch, and I may work on some of the details
a bit tomorrow -- but today all I could think about was
having fun -- the red of the tulips and the amazing way
the green frames them.  In fact the tulips are mostly leaves,
not blooms at all -- but what we see is the red because of
the green back up -- the lovely tangle of lush leaves
that sets them off.

Have a loving what you see day!
