During January I’ve posted two just completed paintings of tulips. I thought I would show you an older painting of tulips. This is my first original painting of tulips and, as you can see, I must have a thing for the RED tulips.

Red Tulips (2008)

I thought you might enjoy seeing how my work has progressed in two years. This particular painting found a very happy home with a local photographer who, unknown to us, had taken a photo of our dogs at the Farmer’s Market, modified it to look like a painting and then left it for us as a gift. I wanted to thank him so I matted this painting and gave it to him with a BIG round of applause and thanks. He told us later his wife was thrilled with my painting so it worked out as a win-win for everyone.

    Beautiful tulip painting, Linda. Love the story togo with it. I think you did an incredible job with this. You have even managed to get the feel of movement in the leaves, below. Appears as though a gentle breeze is slightly moving them.

    That story makes my heart sing! How I wish there could be more paying forward in our world. Linda, I love your early red tulips, but your current red tulips are like the duckling turned to swan! Your diligence is being rewarded. On, sail on!

    Lovely tulips. I have been touring your blog and really enjoy your posts.
    I love the trees you posted in December. I am thinking I will try your printmaking paper and charcoal process. I am looking forward to more!

      Good luck with the new process…if you don’t like the charcoal try it with hard pastels. That also works. You can also layer the two.

    This is such delicate watercolour – I like this – and it is great to give away such a beautiful piece.

  7. Beautiful! I love your style of painting.
