It seems as if winter just won't give up this year. I was complaining on facebook that it was -4 this morning and my friends in Wisconsin let me know that it was -17. My friends in Porto Alegre, Brazil are posting temperatures of 104. We are either too hot or too cold, so the tulips were a fun winter painting.
The paintings always look better in my studio than on the web. I'm getting ready for another road trip but when I get back I am going to learn how to take better pictures of my paintings.

This painting is 8" x 6" and Indiana is under another "winter storm warning" for 7" - 9"! The teapot was extremely difficult to paint. I did two paintings of the same teapot and found each one to be equally difficult. I have decided to wait another month or two before I try another teapot. This afternoon I went to our local Florist, Adrienne's and bought tulips and daffodils. Painting spring flowers should be bring warmth into my studio as the winter storm warnings come and go.
