Just me.

Just me.

She's Got Flowers!

"Are these tulips for me?" I wanted to know.
"No, no! They're for home," the sound bounced off the wall, landed on my left ear and crawled inside it.

This short exchange made me laugh. I decided to place the bunch by the lady I painted 17 days ago. And just look how the colours of the flowers and the leaves accentuate all the purples, yellows, reds and greens in my painting. What an incredible match! I love it! 

If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you'll easily notice that the focus is on the flowers, so my lady appears blurred. Just what I intended!

Thinking about different hues, tints, shades and tones often brings this old song to me. I always fail to grasp the meaning of the lyrics and trying to make links with 'The Canterbury Tales' (well, apart from the obvious) is just beyond me. And it's good to know your limits, I reckon.
