"Tulips and the Pepsi Truck"

Well, this isn't about Wayne Plein Air ... but instead here's the painting I finished today. Enjoy!

See "Tulips and the Pepsi Truck" and others in the Still Life gallery on my web site.

"Tulips and the Pepsi Truck" was renamed (from "Pink Tulips Plus") and reworked today. Most of the setup had been kept in place in my studio since  before leaving for Madrid and California. It was waiting for me.  New tulips and sunflowers purchased today brought it back to life and it was an absolute joy to paint.  Great to look at, too!

Call for Artists
