Tulip {a daily painting}

tulip - a daily painting

Tulip – 8" x 6" (20.3 x 15.25 cm) – Oil on Linen Panel

It is starting to warm up and today while working in the studio the windows were open to let in the fresh air. An added benefit was that noises of spring were filtering in all afternoon, birds chirping and children playing across the street.

Such sounds are making me giddy and excited about the changing season. During the winter months I stopped creating the small “daily paintings” to focus on larger paintings. Though now with the changing season I feel like mixing it up again and incorporating the small format again into my weekly routine. I will probably paint one small format painting once a week to keep things loose.

Thanks for visiting me today. I hope you had a nice weekend,

I just noticed my own tulips blooming a few days ago and it got me excited for Spring. I love the way you handled the tulip in the painting, and against that sensitive gray background it really sings.
