Tulips

This painting began with a dinner party. I had just moved into a new apartment in downtown Minneapolis. As I was unpacking, I rediscovered a table runner that picked up several years ago. It’s a multicolor stripe woven cloth — red, green, yellow, blue orange. I knew that I wanted to have that cloth on my table when I had my parents over, and I also knew that I was going to need some flowers. I picked up a bunch of tulips, and my table was set.

The next morning, after a wonderful evening with my parents, I ate breakfast and stared at the flowers sitting on my table. I had to paint them!
