Tulips and Brass


Just needed a break away from landscapes. Unfortunately my set up had to be artificial tulips. As soon as the weather clears , I will go to the market and buy fresh flowers.

  2. You have treated the artificial flowers like real ones and that is a triumph! Brass also is showing well. Hope that you can get around ..sounds like a nightmare storm headed your way. Stay safe and warm and happy in front of the easel, Joan.:-)

  11. Hi Vic,

    Thank you my friend. I didn't expect the wonderful comments on this painting. It is all so encouraging. Also, just got an email. Brian's dvd is on the way. Wow, this may be the shot in the arm I need to get me back to my landscape paintings. Thanks again my friend.

    All the best

  12. Dear Bruce,

    I am so happy you paid me a visit. Thank you for your support and encouraging words. It's been awhile since you posted. You must be exhausted after you last monumental painting. I do hope the show went well for you.

    All the best to you
    Joan
