Painting Pink 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. Seems like every year I start thinking about Spring in early January when the garden is bare.Are you as anxious for Spring as I am ?  I love to plant bulbs in November and December so I will have a little color in my garden.  Let's join Bentley. my Studio Assistant, in the garden to look for pink Tulips to paint.

I am joining in with all of the pink lovers for Pink Saturday at www.howsweetthesound.typepad where you  can find lots of beautiful pink posts.




















I love the way the pale pink Tulips look in the blue and white vase and decided to paint them.






I dropped the blue and white pitcher and broke off the handle - no worries - I just added it  when I painted the pitcher!!



I read that by dropping a penny into the water will keep Tulips from drooping  so much after they are picked and tried it - it seems to work!!!








Thank you for stopping by.  I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits, e-mails, comments and those who follow my blog.  Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special.
Don't forget to head over to Pink Saturday at www.howsweetthesound.typepad.com.

Have a lovely week.   Blessings,  Erin

Beautiful pinks and pastels ... love the photos - so clear and crisp. You must be really ready for spring.
It's spring, winter, fall, summer any other day here (Central Texas). But it's dead looking outside too ... so eh, I guess we're still in winter?
Happy Pink Saturday!
Enjoyed my visit! Jenn

There is something so classic about pink tulips in a blue and white pitcher. Your painting is beautiful, as always!
