#marchmeetthemaker day 12...a day late! ‘Hands at work’
Here is a combination of the results of hands at work in our little gallery...which is at it’s happiest when having flowers and paint...and yes , even fading flowers. Sometimes my favourite expression of the Tulip, and particularly a ‘Parrot tulip’ such as ‘Rococo ‘ I love this fiery girl. If she were a dance , it would be the Tango!
This is the time of day when the sun dances through the gallery window , casting beautiful shadows and shapes and some very interesting light...
I like the way the light has picked up the burnt orangey tones in the painting echoing the vibrant tones of the tulips. And the wispy wistfulness of the Acacia captures my imagination and transports me to the South of France where the sweet smell of Mimosa is in the air... and delicate yellow confetti dusting the streets...
