I would like to share some of my paintings and drawings.

In progress....

 This is a pretty rough looking painting, but I wanted to show you how these things take a lot of thought and time.  It is a Rembrandt tulip.  It has to be better defined and the background will be started tomorrow. I have always been fascinated with this kind of tulip as well as with parrot tulips.  I hope that I can bring it around into more than just a spot on the canvas with a diverse deep colored background of tulip leaves.

I love tulips. It will be interesting to watch you progress. Do you grow these tulips at your home?

Not this one, I had to use a reference photo. I have hundreds of tulips in the spring, but one has to special order them and I never get that accomplished. I pick up the sales at building centers and plant a bunch at a time.

If anyone can do it, I know you can, Larry. The tulip is already in fine shape. Very brillant colors indeed! Have fun :) The Bach
