Tulips for Emily

this painting is on a new watercolor paper ...

this is a tribute to my young neighbor, emily starkloff-- who passed last week.

she was a fiery redhead-- full of life and laughter.

her joyful presence and bright eyes will be missed.

it was a sad day on Laclede Place -- the neighborhood is honoring her with a red-leafed maple -- which we are planting in the median.
