After touring the booths and the landscapes, I was drawn to a darker corner with nursery pots just "waiting backstage" for their turn in the spotlight! There were lots of heliotropes, a few ferns and this one red pot of tulips. The colors were irresistible to me.
I spent the rest of my time there - talking, painting, watching the puddle under the pots dry up, and the tulips open up... this was the result.
It is an 8 x 10 acrylic on canvas titled "Ladies in Waiting".
Let the Spring painting season officially begin!
