Gardens & Parks, The tulips, Sirkka Jalava


The buquette of tulips looks now like this, it is withered. The flowers have bloomed out. It is time to take them away, but even now they are beautiful. So before I throw them away I painted, or sketched them. Thank you for cheering up me and us so long!

  3. I think they are even more attractive this way! You made them seem like they are outdoors blowing in the wind in their natural surroundings. Lovely job!

  4. Hi! Just wanted to stop by and say hello, I appreciate your comment on my blog! And you have so many blogs!...I taught art for 5 years when I was just out of college. The one thing I wish I had kept up with is drawing. I have become rusty! These flowers are beautiful, i like your style. We woke up to a light dusting of snow, not what i expected. Maybe I need to buy a bunch of tulips!

    1. Hello, Anita, yes definitly you may buy a bunch of tulips! They belong to the spring. You are wellcome! It is pitty, that you feel that you are rusty, you shall train up your skills so you are satisfied again. I have not kept with drawing either for many, many years, but now I draw as much as I want! Thank you stopping by, thank you for your friendly words. Oh, still snow, we have no snow more, but not so warm either, but the sun is shining for several days now.

  11. I actually love tulips when they are all open and loose and dropping their petals. I always put off throwing them out until they are practically bare stems. :) So pretty!
