Last year I bought some beautiful tulip bulbs while visiting the wonderful little town of Holland, Michigan. While I was gone for a week this spring they bloomed into lovely colors of pinks and purples. My daughter picked them to save them from a freeze. Returning home from my trip I was in awe of the beautiful colored tulips that were placed so lovingly in the green and purple pitcher sitting on the coffee table. Just had to try painting these beauties before they faded.
