Spring has finally sprung. Tulips are rising out of the earth following the refreshment of rain. Drinking in the water, their heads swelling and bursting into bright petals. Shimmering in the cold sunshine of early May.
The season’s are running behind the time here. Another cold and wet snap today, but hopefully better by the weekend.
I use the word hope a lot, I know, but thats how I feel. The colours of the tulips have raised my spirits. They photograph well and I have tried to create kaleidoscopic patterns from them.
Bright red juicy lips of deep red from a double tulip hold me enthralled. Playing with the image to make it more contrasted, deeper, more shape to it.
I love spring, the fresh green leaves not totally burst from their buds even now we are in May. I hope it does warm up. I need energy to do more art!
