#117 "Tall Tulips", oil, 6"x24"
Paintings seem to be taking longer to finish these days. I seem to be working on several at a time. Something new for me. It helps to know I have something started to go back to. I think about them all the time. I am also sketching again, and posting on the www.whidbeyislandsketchers.blogspot.com as well as this one. Open Hearted, the February Langly Art Walk at Studio 106 was hugely successful! Many lovely people came for art, chocolate, red roses, red wine, and schmoozing. I was high for days from it. Every Spring I get a hankering to paint tulips, so here is my first of what I think will be several long, tall flower paintings. I really can't help myself. I also have a companion to Mystery Dress in the works and another scene in Langley. I'm also leaving for Mexico for three weeks, so it may be awhile before you see those. I'll be posting sketches though on the sketchers blog. The Ray for the Day is "Tall Tulips".
