"Tulip Fields"

Tulip Fields

36" x 60" Acrylic on canvas


Flowers in a landscape

T hey can give a marvellous opportunity to use bold colors in an abstract way to create unusual vibrancy. Rows of tulips advance into the distance creating rhythms of red, orange and yellow.

"Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice." Psalm 96:12

Painting Tip


Try to think about your painting as a design with abstract elements instead of a collection of items to be copied. Even the old masters had that as an underlying goal.

Don't be afraid to take chances. Not every painting will be a success, but it can be a learning experience.

Have fun! Don't be too serious. Creating art is play! Remember the fun you probably had as a child creating paintings.


"When I judge art, I take my painting and put it next to a God made object like a tree or flower. If it clashes, it is not art." Paul Cezanne



This quotation by Paul Cezanne is an inspiration to me to always keep in mind that God is the Master Designer and to let creation be the source of my landscape ideas.
