Maybe it's because of Thanksgiving or something -- the grocery store had some huge orange tulips. Tulips in November??? These kept beckoning me, so I finally decided to go for it even though I heard tulips are very difficult to paint because they move around with just the slightest change in sunlight. Guess what, they do move around - almost like they're two legged! I figured if I work really fast and get it captured in an hour I'd be fine, but nooooo. . . . So here's my attempt starting from painting live to stopping to take a few emergency reference photos to keep it together. What a challenge. Including a reference photo to show how far apart the tulips ventured in a very short time, like 20 minutes! It was fun watching them dance all week. Get a bunch, put them in a well lit room and enjoy the show!

Reference photo - perhaps the title should be
"she's just not that into you!"
Happy Thanksgiving - it is special to celebrate this uniquely American holiday. We are so very lucky.
