Inspired by Tulips - HAPPY EASTER!
Though I enjoyed painting the other tulips in a more traditional style - I really felt the need to splatter and splash -- and so worked on these as well. I really loved playing with lost and found edges, and 'finding' a tulip here, a leaf there.'
We spent several hours yesterday hiking the Eno River State Park - a part of the park we haven't visited since BEFORE we were married! Changes -- oh yes -- but what wonderful sounds of gurgling and tumbling water (even saw a fly fisherman and kayakers). There were so many boulders that we had fogotten about, bluets and violets carpeting the fields -- and the weather couldn't have been more wonderful! We stopped a bit for a plein air attempt and Charles played his mandolin while I tried to simplify what was before me. It was an utterly delightful day ....!
