Pink Fields of Tulips!

I love fields of colorful flowers and when I saw the photography of Steve Phelps I knew I just had to paint them! These are beautiful pink tulips in Washington. Steve has been following my
art on Facebook for a while now and about a months ago he posted one of his gorgeous photos on my
page and said that my art had inspired his work! It is really an honor to inspire another artist and I was thrilled when I asked if I could use his work as reference for a painting. Well this is what he inspired me to do! I just love the creative world of art! I've met so many really nice people.

Breathtaking, Jennifer!

What a wonderful thing to find a photographer whose work you like, too.

Really, this is utterly beautiful. Susan

Thank you so much Susan! It's hard to go wrong with pink, though:)

Ah, loving tulips; so gorgeous in this painting, Jennifer! We do respond to pink, so many of us. My grandfather was born in The Netherlands so I am particularly drawn to this special Dutch flower...just seems to go with the windmills and wooden shoes although they grow so many other places.

Hi Vicki!
I think of windmills too...I was surprised to learn there were fields of them in Washington! I guess the climate is just right up there. I'm in the process of changing this painting slightly. I'll post it again when I finish! Have a great week!
