"Almost Tulip Time"

"Skagit Valley Afternoon" watercolor, 8x12, $245.00
Original No Longer Availabale

I will never forget the first time I visited the Skagit Valley north of Seattle, WA. I went to partake of the Tulip Festival. I sold some art there and in the morning and afternoons, I would sneak out and catch the sun on the tulips in the fields. Some of the fields were so stunning in colors of tulips It was almost fake. I took so many photos. If you have never been, you need to go, watch the website they have and go when the tulips are in bloom. It is quite a site to see. In 2009 I had the honor of painting the official Skagit Valley tulip festival Poster, I featured my son in the poster picking tulips, and we both got to go and sign the poster together, it was pretty neat. see the poster below. If you want to buy a poster from me see my website.

  1. I just found your website and blog today! Keep up the great efforts. You are such a fine example for other men both young, old and in between.I am planning a trip to the Edmond's Art Festival this summer so my husband and I might get to meet you in person.

    1. Kim, Thanks for the comment, It is nice to have a few at times. I enjoy doing the blog thing, I do wonder though if many really look at it. Hope to see you in Edmonds.

  2. ps.Your Tulip Festival poster is my favorite of all the posters we have had. You really captured the essence of our valley.
