last legs

My store-bought tulips are drooping and de-petaling. Though they were well worth the five bucks I paid for them.
Cut back the stems and put them in little bottles for my last exploration.
I'm beginning to realize that one key to being able to paint clear glass bottles is what you put behind them. I think if I try several more of these, I may be able to simplify the bottle in the way I've been envisioning.

Love this. When tulips go, it's very quick isn't it.

I agree that glass is a nightmare to paint. \However, this one is really very good,and so is the tulip

Dear Laura - I think this is really so lovely. I like all the reflections you see in that glass jar. Thank you for sharing.

I like the way you did the bottle but I know what you mean about trying to do something the way you envision it. You do flowers so well though Laura.

Beautiful tulip and glass (so difficult!) is so well executed. Tender brushstrokes.
