I was so sad about the approaching end of the yellow tulips in my kitchen that
I decided to sketch them in a different medium. The first painting is going very
well, and I can finish it with the photos I took for reference. But I thought I
would like to try something looser.

So here it is. Flashes of insight into what to do next come to me when I walk
away and do something else. That’s part of what painting is all about, and I am
having fun thinking about it. The flowers finally stopped being okay today,
and have to go into the compost. But I have given them all of my attention,
and enjoyed thinking about spring flowers as the snow fell outside yesterday.

Wishing you a creative, happy, healthy life.
