"Tulips for the Girls", Pastel, 8" x 11"

It occurred to me that I never shared this painting on my blog.  It is something I painted a few years ago, and it was around Easter.  So, in honor of  Easter and the promise of Spring, I am posting this painting.    I ended up giving prints of this to my Mom, my sisters, and my sisters-in-law, thus the title "Tulips for the Girls".

I painted this on watercolor paper, with Art Spectrum Colourfix primer.  I used pan pastels sprayed with alcohol as the underpainting, and various sticks from my vast collection.

Happy Easter!

Beautiful! I really like the way this painting has an ethereal glow about it.

Thanks so much Kate. I did push the colors a bit, I'm glad it's working for you.
