I remember the weather on the day I shot the picture I used for this painting. It was one of those hot April days with blue skies and chirping birds. The grass was green and soft and I just wanted to take off my Chacos and walk barefoot through the gardens. When I look at this painting, I remember the smells of grass and fresh mulch. The sun was so warm and right overhead.
At my last art show, an art collector remarked that they loved how in my paintings, something fleeting is preserved. Tulips last only a few weeks here in Utah, but they love that through my art they can buy a painting and enjoy the tulips all year long. They thought that was something that made my paintings special. It was a neat point of view and I appreciated them sharing it with me.
