Woke up Thinking Tulips

I woke up yesterday thinking tulips….
thinking Spring….
so wanting to paint tulips.

I awoke to a rainy Monday…
feeling earlier than it was with the time change…
going to the gym and getting to work.

But as the day progressed….
the afternoon brought sunshine and warmth…
and by dinnertime, the temperatures were above 70 degrees F.

After dinner, I grabbed a sheet of watercolor paper…
A full sheet – 9 x 12 inches…
and I sat on the deck with flips flops and sun still shining.

And I painted tulips…
loose and free and Springy….
and this is how they turned out.

Happy Spring!
Happy Tulips!
Happy HeArt!

Cheers & Hugs,
