The Difficulty of Painting Tulips

I don't grow my own tulips, so I bought some at the grocery store. I knew that the large pale yellowish white ones would be a challenge to paint, and they are. The pink ones were small and closed. Gradually they have grown like 10 serpents, their stems lengthening and reaching in all directions. It's a race to paint them as they change from minute to minute. The yellowish ones have changed little, the pink ones are mutating into floral hydras. Who would have thought?
