I don't have many tulips in my garden so I was happy to see the few that I have blooming their hearts out until I discovered several cut off midway up the stem. I can only assume the local rabbit population has also been enjoying them. So I felt less guilty about gathering them all up and bringing them inside. (Believe it or not I do feel guilty even though I get to enjoy them up close). I could never scold my daughter when she was five and proudly showed me armfuls of garden flowers cut just for me. I was glad she could do what I
had trouble doing. So this painting is fresh off the easel and will be followed by a few more of the same grouping. I had four or five from this last photo
shoot that I'd like to do while I still have the color palette available.
