I’ve said it once, twice, a million times… I loVe tulips!

Any colour, any pattern, in any state of decay.

I like them standing up, flopping down, insides showing or not.

My daughter remarked recently that I haven’t painted tulips much considering my strength of feeling for them. Hells Bells – she was right!

So that needed rectifying, trouble was the bunch I had been enjoying was already passed it’s finest, so the race was on.

I could remember the colours but after drawing it, as the petals fell, the shapes changed beyond recognition. Lucky I have an artistic licence.
