The crosses in the background were put on after seeing a winner in a local art competition. The artist had filled a piece of A3 paper with small crosses done with a biro. I believe it's abstract expressionism, but it's winning caused a furore.
So, I doodled biro crosses on my tulips, which could be cross stitch, amongst text perhaps, rather than abstract expressionism!
I have some beautiful tulips in the garden at the moment. I love the way the sun shines through the petals to make them glow. So warm, so vibrant.
I thought I would do some preparitory work on a piece involving orange tulips but with the design more as the altered book.
Just thinking out loud for the moment.
