I traveled to the south of England, visiting a few castles and manors scattered about. In one manor in Cornwall I walked into an elegantly decorated and furnished dining room. On the highly polished table stood a tall vase of orange, red and yellow tulips. I loved the light and shadow play from the window, reflected onto the table. This was a lovely quiet moment that I tried to capture in oil.

A tulip doesn’t strive to impress anyone.
It doesn’t struggle to be different than a rose.
It doesn’t have to. It is different.
And there’s room in the garden for every flower.
Marianne Williamson contemporary author
Tip toe through the window
By the window, that is where I'll be
Come tip toe through the tulips with me
Tip toe from the garden
By the garden of a willow tree
And tip toe through the tulips with me
