This week I have had a lot of fun making a big stack of pretty papers using a printing plate and various tools, mostly hand made.
One of those papers found its way into this piece as the vase, and more bits and tidbits make up the tulips and stems. I imagine this scene with the light of the morning sun shining in through a window casting a bit of a glow on everything… It invokes a bit of calm and stillness for me, like someone took the time in the early morning to gather tulips and is sitting at a sunny kitchen table arranging them. I can almost smell the fresh air and see the cottage curtains flapping in the breeze!
But since I paint better than I garden, and am more likely to linger at my studio work table than the kitchen table, this is my alternative.
Hope you have a beautiful, sunshiny day!
