Window Tulips

Window Tulips
Oil on Canvas
16 x 20 inches
Auburn, Alabama

I thought that finding something to do with tulips would be easy. They are so colorful and simple; surely I could just throw together a set up. I went though idea after idea and nothing caught me. To make it more difficult the tulips were drooping terribly.

To remedy the droop I put holes in a Styrofoam coffee cup, shoved the tulips in and put the whole thing in a pot. I then carried the pot from place to place until it landed on my studio window sill. At that point I was ready to throw it on the floor and paint the mess.

I liked the shear curtain and the glazed pot. I little fine tuning and it was ready to be painted.
