Starting a painting

The sight of these tulips in my kitchen makes me feel so happy. On Friday night
my husband and I were both tired, and not in great moods.  I bought them to lift 
his spirits. And he arranged them in the vase so beautifully.

But these gorgeous tulips can’t last. It’s the wrong time of year, and I wanted to
capture them at their best. So I’m part way there. I'm off to a good start, and I feel
excited about how the painting is going. I hope the flowers can hold on for another
day just until I'm close to finishing the painting.

Please stay creative, safe and healthy.

Thanks so much Evelyn,

It's come a long way, but it's still not finished. The flowers are beautiful, and still hanging in a week later. I hope they can stay with me until it's done. I did take some photos in case they're gone.

Love, love, love your work.
