Pale Pink Tulips

“Light Pink Tulips” ©Jill Rosoff 2010, 17 1/2″ x 6″, SOLD

I saw this bunch of pale, pale pink tulips in the container with all of the other bunches of tulips:  red, yellow, pink, orange, lavender.  In comparison, these were almost white, and only when I picked them up and looked at them did I notice just the hint of the pale pink at the edges, and delicate pink lines in the little ribs of the petals, as if the color had drained into the crevices.  I visualized the painting in a heartbeat.  It was one of those paintings that just popped out and onto the paper, almost as if I had nothing to do with it.  Magic.
