Today’s Simple Nature Sketch
I’m taking advantage of the abundance of tulips in the stores, by toting frequent bouquets home. They are such a cheerful sign of spring. This spring bouquet held a rainbow of colors, pink, yellow and white, along with a few gorgeous violet irises and a few large stalks of pussy willows.
This sunny colored tulip lights up the space it occupies, even when it is dreary outside. I actually love how tulips appear before they open fully. Their petals nestle into each other adding mystic to the interesting parts inside.
The intriguing thing about tulips is that they continue to grow once placed in water. A few years ago, I had discovered this truth during a studio painting session. After painting tulips one evening, I walked into my studio the next day, to see they had grown in height!
I hope you are able to enjoy the cheeriness of tulips in your area as well!
