It is a happy new year! Though I'm not usually a painter of flowers, every once in a while my brush moves in the floral directon. This 5x7 inch painting emerged after I recently finished reading Michael Pollan's book The Botany of Desire. His prose are delightful and his descriptions of colorful tulips in the second chapter on the desire for beauty moved me in a floral direction. It will find its way to Small Impressions Gallery when it is dry.
