my first tulip painting, 1997
I found the first tulip watercolor I did as an adult in 1997. I had gone to the Dallas Arboretum with my husband and his parents and was in love with all of the red tulips. I did not have a digital camera, yet, so I may have taken one or two photos of the tulips. One week later, my husband and I bought our first home, it had red tulips in the front flower beds! I did the painting before we saw our house, and I should say before I had taken any watercolor classes! I show this to you - who knows what your tulips would look like after a couple of classes!!!!
Perfect timing to post this, the tulips are in full bloom at the Dallas Arboretum and I have been working so hard for my upcoming art show at the Dallas Arboretum in April. Who knew when I was first inspired to paint tulips in the Dallas Arboretum that 17 years later I would be in an art show there.
Important upcoming dates:
