Wednesday Workday - (Interesting People in their Environment)

Artist at Work
Thanksgiving Point Gardens has a tulip festival each spring where over 250,000 tulips are on display along with hundreds of thousands of other spring flowers.  It is a photographer's dream if you love flowers.  It is also an artist's dream,  especially if you are an artist who specializes in painting tulips!  

A few years ago The Gardens had a spring photo contest.  There were 13 winners.  They produced a lovely calendar with each month displaying one of the winning photos.  The 13th winner was used on the front cover of the calendar.  This is my photo as it appeared on the cover of that calendar.

Wonderful, colorful photo. Perfect for the cover of a garden calender.

I had a similar idea for my Nov 17, 2009 post. If you want to check it out go to

Very nice job on that! I'm certainly not surprised that that was the cover photo.

Congratulations on nailing the cover with this shot. I can see why it is so well liked. It's simply beautiful. I love the colors and the position of the painter's artwork.
