on the difficulty of growing tulips
up here in the almost-wild of new england we live close to nature surrounded by green growing things and all manner of creatures fanged and clawed feathered and furred scaled and exoskeletal some with horns others carapaced like miniature tanks creepy-crawlers graceful fliers tiny nibblers and fierce hunters an astonishing universe of wildlife that fortunately for the most part keeps itself to itself the lure of tulips is however apparently irresistible once planted we're lucky to get one blooming season before the bulbs are devoured from underneath by mice and voles chipmunks and squirrels and who knows what-all if by some miracle the bulbs are unmolested the stems are neatly snapped while you sleep deer also being connoisseurs of tulips
i have given up on growing tulips the game not worth the candle and all the same for love i've given that up too not only is that game not worth the candle but before it flickers out it's like as not to leave you with a nasty burn now i buy my tulips neatly by the bunch but love - ah, who can buy it? and what fool would even if one could? i sit by my kitchen window admiring my storebought tulips and try not to think about love 2014 RC deWinter
Hello and welcome to my portfolio; I hope the year is treating you gently.
I am a self-taught photographer and digital artist. I have been shooting photos for over 30 years and digitally painting them for nearly ten. Many pieces have been featured in both print and online journals, and five of my works were licensed by ABC-TV for use as set decor on the show "Desperate Housewives."
I am happy to paint on commission. For more information, please email: email@example.com If you enjoy my work, please spread the word, and thank you for stopping by.
