I painted these Tulips in oils having frequently visited Bowral in the Southern Highlands of NSW during their annual Tulip Festival in early spring. Also having a Dutch mother and all her family, I’ve been blessed to travel with my husband twice to the Netherlands, the second time, fairly recently, and spent time with favourite spritely but elderly aunts and a dear uncle who I may not see again this side of Heaven.
So tulips are a special flower to me.
The Scripture is from the Bible, Galations 5:13b “By love, serve one another.” and the quotation, “Do Little Things with Great Love,” is by the late Mother Teresa of Calcutta, the founder of the missionaries of Charity, the order of nuns who are now in many countries ministering to the poor and marginalised people.
Thank you for looking at this work. Please let me know any T-Shirt know how as I’m a novis and I’m not sure if the writing font is clear enough.
