Deborah Schlegel December Challenge

I decided to focus on the tulips in this month’s inspiration artwork – even though winter’s just begun, I’m already looking forward to spring and my garden full of tulips! I used the fabric in the pieces background as the beads’ background, kept the red and greens of the flowers, and used strong black lines as Valadon did. The beads are terracotta and painted in the majoilica tradition with ceramic glazes and stains.
