My Wife's Passion

Both my wife and I are both feeling a bit under the weather due to allergies and a cold we both caught. To raise our spirits and try to put more spring in our step we've been trying to do the things we love. For her that is painting and for me it's photography. So today I took these photographs of her painting a picture inspired by a photograph I took of three pink tulips she planted in our yard.

Here she is working on her painting of three orange tulips.

Here is a closer view of the paint that she has mixed to get just the right shade.

Taking a moment to admire her work.

This is my photograph that she said inspired her to create this painting

Looking from our living room into her art studio.
