Abba Tulips

Abba Tulips, watercolour, 11 x 8 inches, 2014.

I couldn't resist getting these tulip bulbs last year when I saw the name. They .looked gorgeous in the garden but just after they had opened we had a day of heavy rain and they took a bit of a battering. I cut them and put them in a vase and decided to memorialise them in paint.

What I am up to....

It's been quiet on the art front for me recently.  One of my cats, Will, had a serious health issue that meant a serious operation and then a month recuperating with a lot of care and attention. I'm hoping that the problem is now fixed and we can get back to "normal"! In the meantime, all the new tulips I planted last Autumn have come into flower - hence the drawing above, the base for a new painting :)
