Winter White Tulips

Oil on Deep Gallery Wrap Canvas
I was rushing a bit to finish this painting, as my studio models were dipping, bowing, and few were actually fainting in the midst of their posing session. I offered them a glass of fresh water, fanned them and told them they looked stunningly beautiful under the bright lights, but, alas, some of them simply had no stamina. This is what happens when you starve yourself, living only on saltines and cashews, I told them quite sternly. I'll be curious to see if any of them get rest tonight, you know how models are, out partying all night with all the other beautiful flowers while the rest of us sit home on the couch watching Championship Jeopardy re-runs...
The studio models take a bow and a dip, and some faint!
