This is one of my most recent watercolors. Spring is in the air...I know it's a bit early to see tulips in bloom, at least here in central Illinois. Yet, I simply couldn't resist. This photo has been in my files for a couple of years now and I figured it was time to see if I could do it justice with a watercolor painting.

I was particularly attracted to the angle of the photo and the way the light and shadows played around on the petals. I will admit, the colors you see here are a tad more vibrant than my reference...but that is our option as artists isn't it?

I always thought I would use this reference photo for a drawing...I'm glad I held off and chose to do a watercolor instead.

On a different subject...I have a HEALTH UPDATE:

I'm not going into detail...but I have been 'issue free' for 14 days now. I'm believing that I'm on the mend. This has been a long ordeal (almost a year)...I feel like for the first time in months I can see light at the end of the tunnel.

I just want to say thank you for the encouraging emails and prayers. God does listen and does answer if we just believe.

Bless you for caring,

Mark 11:24
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
Mark 11:23-25 (in Context)

Very glad to hear you are doing better. I had posted once earlier and I guess I should have defined who was posting! I am actually the Sharee portion of Kendall and Sharee! LOL. My wonderful husband is quite the little artist himself so I show him your website also. Love the colors of the tulips! Wonderful picture!

Beautiful painting! Love the angle and color. Quite large, too, bet it is awesome in person.

Thank you for the health update, I am so glad for you and hope all continues to go well.

Thanks for your well wishes...yes, I'm doing much better. Glad you enjoyed the tulips. They were fun to paint.

I got down on the ground to take this photo...almost couldn't get up.

Thanks to you both for stopping by my blog and taking time to leave a comment.
