I find the sight of tulips in November refreshing and hopeful. Tulips are
generally a spring flower, and we are heading into winter soon.
But today it’s beautiful, warm, and everything you associate with spring
except for the colour of the golden leaves on all the trees brightly lit by sunshine.

So I’m working on this loose sketch. It was a fun experiment. It’s a very hard
time for creativity, because of the constant worry about Covid -- and in our
city the numbers are rising dramatically. But art is what brings artists joy. Wishing
you a creative and joyous week. The U.S. news of the Biden /Harris win is fantastic,
and it makes us all happy.
