Painting Tulips






Welcome. I am so happy that you stopped by. My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and relax with a cup of tea while I share with you the inspirations for my art. The Tulips were lovely this year due to the heavy rainfall we had in California. Let's go into the garden to join Bentley, my Studio Assistant, to look for inspiration to paint the last of the Tulips.









I love the purple Tulips I received for Mother's Day.

I decided to paint the pink bouquet of Tulips.







I love putting little paintings in the garden.

Thank you for stopping by. I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits,


e-mails, comments and those who are following my blog. I read and cherish all of your comments. Forgive me if I do not always leave you a comment back as sometimes time does not allow me to visit everyone.





Have a lovely week. Blessings, Erin

You received a very pretty bouquet. Here in the garden, the tulips have faded.
I like very much your new painting. The colors are very well balanced. The painting is perfect associated to your flowers pots.

Hello Erin,

Your paintings always make me smile...I love your colors. I still haven't found the time to try my hand at a painting although I'm certainly applying my hand at painting the house. If we'd just get some windless days we could get back at it again! Your painting looks lovely in your garden. I hope your Wednesday is a good one.
Maura :)

An amazing painting! I love the blends of different shades of pink. A very romantic, restful piece of art.
