When I went to Washington (state) in April, the tulips were in bloom. That is the reason I chose April for my visit. They were stunning.
While at the Redbud Festival in Three Rivers, I saw a lady wearing a skirt with a tulip print. The tulips were progressively larger as they got closer to the hem.
It gave me the idea to paint the tulip fields as a triptych. Triptych is Artspeak for three paintings that are meant to be seen as one scene. I have no earthly idea why this looks so cool, but it does. (It is pronounced “trip-tick”)
Turn your head sideways, squint a bit, and imagine these as a triptych. The top piece has more layers than the other two, but you probably figured that out all by yourself. And pay no attention to the gingko leaf in the upper left.
Occasionally this California artist has to take a trip. On this one she got a tych. But not a tick.
Ever seen an entire field of the same flower in bloom at once time? You can share it here.
