Recently, I finished a new oil painting of the Tulips and Daffodils blooming in the flower garden. I wasn’t totally idle while awaiting creativity to come back for eight months, a.k.a. The Muse, and worked on a stained glass project , which you can read about HERE. But now The Muse is back and things are good.
The Tulips and Daffodils put on a spectacular show this year. Due to the abundance of rain this spring, the flowers grew big and lasted a long time.
A beautiful bouquet adorned my studio for a few short days as my subject for this painting. Reference photos were used to finish the painting when the flowers had wilted. Some of the photos came out beautiful and I may use them in other photography projects.
Look how lovely the tulips are. They bloomed in an array of colors from pastel pink to vibrant orange with splashes of red! Here’s the finished painting entitled “Daffodils and Tulips”, painted on an 8″x 10″ panel in oils. It will be framed in white and you can find it in the Gallery in a few months.
The “Tamarack Mountain Studio” watermark is not on the original painting. The new “Tulips and Daffodils” oil painting is drying in the studio and next month will be varnished, before sending it off to be framed. I really enjoyed painting this piece and had the most fun painting the vase and the leaves on the table.
Currently on the easel is a Beared Iris painting and it’s coming out great! I can’t wait to share it with you! Here’s a sneak peak:
Thanks for stopping by! I’ll post the latest painting soon, so stay tuned!
Happy Summer! Much Love ~Rhonda
