Early Birds

 10 x 10" original oil

Last spring when I headed to Thanksgiving Point Gardens to check on the early tulips, it had been so cold and windy that most of the buds were still hiding. I spent a few hours photographing what flowers I could find, and these pansies were little champs, growing in crowded clusters against sunny pavers. I'd like to paint a larger piece, about 20x30" of this same patch of pansies, but more zoomed out. I love how much blue is in the purples here. It's a color I don't use often in my tulip pieces.
