Watercolor on 140lb paper
This trio of tulips was just aglow in the sun.
The blur of the old lawn chair reminded me of so many summer mornings having coffee in the garden.

I am inspired by everything in life.
Nature, landscape, city life and more.
Over 25 years as a flight attendant has let me see life from every angle. On the road my camera and Mac are my constant companions. At home, it’s hard to find me with out a paint brush in hand.
No matter what, as long as I am creating I am content.
Thanks for viewing my work!!

    Wonderful mood Elizabeth. I guess it comes from the simplicity, but at any rate I really like the feel of this painting.

  • Thanks Richard:))) I just wish I had more time for simplicity…..painting is so relaxing!

    Lovely painting and touching being that I’m the middle of 3 sisters.

  • Thank you so much Susan!! I am the younger……there were 5 sisters, but three of us seem to be a bit glued to each other. So this was special for me in that way.

    They still are having the glow of sun.
    So golden.
    I have observe the tulips and photographied them many times. Find it is a difficult flower to photograph. Flowers have a shade of light inside the petals that reverberate with the sun rays. And mostly you have to adjust very wisely the camera in order of not getting highlights that are really horrible.
    And besides trying to take the “silky” threading of veins and colours..even a purpurine shading Tulips are cheating. Seem easy but they are not. By their own simplicity they are not easy. The three sisters are enchanting, upright and they have a movement along the breeth. You are lucky being able to have breaskfast smelling the grass and letting your eyes run along the petals borders.
    A hug….beautiul painting, Elizabeth.

  • Oh, Rosa……I remember seeing and reading your comment……but I guess I got distracted as I do and didn’t reply!! I always feel sad when I get lost like that……this wan not one to miss on giving a reply. How lovely always to read the comments when you are so inspired. I am thrilled that this is one that you painted with your words……thank you Rosa!! xxxooo
