18x24" original oil in progress
This is one of six commissions I need to complete in January, and the first painting of 2013. The tulips in this painting will be pink, yellow, and a pale orange. I had planned to paint this reference as a larger 20x30", but someone saw the reference on my studio wall and asked if I'd paint it 18x24" for them. I will still paint this reference again on a larger scale. It's too good to only use once.
I am so glad to be working again after a long holiday break. I really depend on a routine, and working in my studio day after day is safe and dependable. I'm so glad the art I'm producing finds happy homes! I love my job. Thank you to who has ever bought one (or more) of my paintings and supported me.
