"Red Hot Ruffled Tulip"

8" x 10"  watercolor matted and framed  $125.00

One Easter tulip so beautiful and crisp and satin.  I viewed this from the top and was smitten.  Have you ever been smitten?  Did I drool?  Yes.  Did I swoon?  Yes.  Was I fickle?  Yes.  As the blossom faded and fell, I became less enamored in it, yet each petal still had something velvet about it.  I cut the stem back several times in order to allow the stem to drink.  I thoroughly enjoyed it until the end.

At days end:

“People are like grass;
    their beauty is like a flower in the field.
The grass withers and the flower fades.
25     But the word of the Lord remains forever.”[f]
