Art For A Good Cause

The following painting was created at the behest of a dear friend, James Child-Evans, who is offering it as an auction prize for sponsors of his charity half marathon run, successfully completed, on behalf of Dorothy House: Dorothy House gives free high-quality care and support to people with life-threatening illness. They are the local hospice charity for Bath, North and West Wiltshire and parts of Somerset. The tulip is integral to their logo.

Tulips are bold and beautiful and their 'structural strength' and emphatic colour makes them exciting to paint. The vase is one of a stock my wife has and I liked its simple pattern.
