A day in the tulips

I haven't posted a new blog for almost 2 months! I've been soooo busy painting, packing and figuring out how to downsize, having a new house built! So, what do you do when you become overwhelmed? Take a day off and head out to the tulip fields with a good friend! Amazing artist, Sharyn Sowell and I had this little trip planned for over a year and yesterday we finally made it. The fields were ablaze with incredible colors, such inspiration. We went a little crazy with our Nikons, I think between us we took about 800 shots. That's just kinda what happens when two artists who are in total love with nature are let loose in a place like this.  Here are just a few of the gorgeous sights....

We had to stop an smell every hyacinth we passed
