One of the largest paintings I have ever done, at a whopping 111cm x 76cm it was larger than the desk I was trying to paint it on. I had to make up an extra painting board to go over the top. It features a magnificent Adriaen Kocks tulipierre filled with tulips, and because I couldn’t help myself I had to throw in a couple of budgies where the ceramicist had some weird unspecified animals holding up the top tiers. I am quite excited as this piece was sold to a Dutch collector of tulip paintings!
