More about this piece
The arrival of the first bunches of tulips of the year in florists and supermarkets always lifts my spirits. I start to believe that spring may, after all, be closer than we think. I bought these on a particularly cold, grey and miserable afternoon, dumped them unceremoniously in a favourite old jug and they brightened up our kitchen for days.
The painting is gracing a friend's kitchen wall in her beautiful home.
