A pink elephant wandered past the tulip forest.... I like the idea of combining toys and flowers. May try a few more. I'm seeing fresh tulips every time I go out, they are an unfussy but fun flower to paint. Trader Joes has them potted and in bouquets. How wonderful to find them in the dead of winter!


  1. Oh, so pretty! These are a luscious color. I see warm and cool pinks and warm and cool greens. Nice variations.

  2. Diane, Seeing your lovely tulips makes me want to run over to Trader Joe's and buy a bunch. It's been a long winter. Great painting - these flowers and the elephant!

  3. Eeee... I am jumping up and down clapping my hands in delight. [okay, only in my mind because jumping at my age is not a pretty sight]

    Wonderful whimsical gems! You have such the gift to brighten a day and provoke a smile! HUGS!!!

  4. I love that you combined toy and flowers
    love it Diane !

  5. Diane I love this painting... the toy elephant is sooooooo cute!!!
