Dear Knoxville


The Crazy Lady that you saw standing alongside Kingston Pike in various locations yesterday photographing tulips and grinning like a fool? That was me. Yep. And the patient fellow sitting in the car in the nearby parking lot(s) (and there were SEVERAL stops) trying hard to not let me see him rolling his eyes? That was my husband. Yep.

Nice, huh?

Oh well worth all the embarrassment and eye-rolling! Gosh, what beautiful fowers!!! I hope we are going to see your interpretation?

You get the eye rolling too? LOL. I don't think I've ever seen a field of tulips such as these.....beautiful. Will be anticipating how this will be interpreted on canvas!

ps. Don't think the pastel ground helped or hurt the piece, just that I didn't have another prepared hardboard prepared. I am playing with a different medium which I'm really liking; sun thickened linseed oil which gives the paint lots of body and shine. Thanks for your comments. It has turned out to be my favorite piece of the semester...and I din't get to finish it!!!

Hee, hee! I did the same thing last fall on one of the busy roads on Cape Breton Island. Rob crawled along in the car behind me as I kept finding new viewpoints to photograph. I'm sure more than one passing driver thought: "Ach! Tourists!"

This is abeautiful bed of tulips! Nicely composed, too.

I usually try to do a drive by shooting....but I have to say that the pictures aren't always the best they could be when I use that method. Your crazy lady method is probably better.

Glorious! You and your husband sound like me and mine. Did they know when they married us how wacky we were, deep down inside?

I haven't visited in a while and this is what I've been missing!! As for the eye-roller...anyone who DOESN'T stop for tulips deserves an eye-roll. How could you not stop to admire such a perfect spring flower?
