painted this scene from the Dallas Arboretum on location a few weeks
ago when the weather was beautiful and the spring buds were in full
bloom. I love tulips being one of the first flowers to announce that
winter has officially ended, so I focused on these colorful red and
white striped ones in the foreground, which contrast so well against the
complimentary green leaves and grasses. I also liked how their height
leads you back into the distant flower beds and onto the Degolyer house
in the background, so I chose this vertical panorama format to
accentuate that feeling. Loaded with thick oil paint, texture and
movement, I hope you can feel the joy that spring is in the air!
