I painted on Sunday, and after touring all the booths and constructed landscapes, I was drawn to a darker corner where some nursery pots were just "waiting backstage". There was a mass of heliotrope, a few ferns and one bright red tulip pot at the front. The colors were irresistible to me and I spent the entire day there! The puddle on the floor from watering dried up and the tulips opened quite a bit during the 4 hours I spent there. I tried to capture the best of both.
This is an 8 x 10 acrylic on canvas titled "Ladies in Waiting". It will be for sale at The Artist Market of Pomfret Street, Carlisle PA. Check out the Market on Facebook.
