This larger tulip painting doesn’t look much like the study posted previously but I think they each have different things going for them. I especially enjoy the undulating leaves in the foreground in this one.
Here is Tom’s haiku written for this painting. As he said – “Small poem for a large painting! They seem innocent and open, but the wood behind…”
pink, red, open, closed…
tulip blossoms greet spring sun
keeping no secrets

Beautiful painting, and the poem is perfect for it….open, and keeping no secrets. Really lovely!
Thank you! The poem is lovely, isn’t it! Tom appreciates your comment too. 🙂
The poems are an extra layer of imagination for each of your paintings on your blog. Its so lovely to get a first impression, and then another after reading the poem. Lovely gift you both have in collaboration!
Thank you! It is a wonderful thing to inspire each other. 🙂 I often see things in the works differently after reading his poems.
