Tulips in Cornwall

Updated: Sep 13, 2021

Artist's Statement

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
