What matters

The wonder of tulips
iPad drawing
8 x 10 inches

Here's what matters -- love, joy, kindness, fun, exuberance, empathy, humour
care.  The list is long.  This drawing of tulips is far from perfect, but for me
today it captures the luminous joy these flowers exude.  On a walk passing by tulips, 
the joy they transmit is immediate! Yes!

Bring them inside and put them in a vase, or jug, and that pleasure is available
to you every time you enter the room, or sit down and have a coffee, drinking in the
delight of those beauties. So if you can, get yourself some tulips today and
enjoy them.

Have a loving your life day.

Beautiful drawing❣️ And a beautiful reminder of what matters. I love when tulips come up in unexpected places in my garden. I found one today that hadn’t bloomed for years. They alway make me smile. ��. ����❣️❣️❣️

Thank you so much Evelyn,

They are just starting to bloom in our garden and it is the most delightful
surprise when they do.

Still waiting on my tulips. But the bluebells are blooming and I really need to paint them.
As always I love the color and confidence in your work!

Hi Laura,

Thank you so much. Ours are just beginning, and I'm glad they're not
early. I so love your work.
