Tulips in a row

Awhile back I made some wild and crazy claim that I was going to try my hand at painting more flowers. Then I got a bit distracted and painted two wedding dresses instead (I was working under the assumption that if you watch them long enough they turn into flowers. I was mistaken).

But this weekend I tried my hand at some tulips. Sorry the picture isn't all that great. I've quickly realized the only good way to take a good painting picture is in broad daylight and we haven't seen that stuff in going on three days now.
Flowers are not only expensive and pretty, they're also a giant pain in the butt to paint. I think I should start painting stems instead.

I'm also being all featured and stuff over at My Island Wedding offering up my own wedding advice (which is funny as I didn't have an island wedding nor do I have any advice whatsoever).

You may remember Kelly, as I painted the super cool dog for her (and some other wedding stuff I guess): I've got another floral type painting in the wings, so all you floral junkies should get your fix soon.

LOVE the tulips. If I knew I forgot, but did you have formal training? Have you taken a class or do you just have super human talent?!

Those tulips look AMAZING! I love it. Do blossoms or dogwood ... I'd love to see it :)
