essential brightness

The state of Illinois where I live these strange days has been on lockdown stay-at-home orders since the middle of March. We seemed to have plenty of food and other essentials so I did not leave the house for at least two weeks. Finally with mask and gloves I went out to a local small store. I did not come home with food, I came home with these huge bright red and yellow tulips. My family gasped. "You risked your life and ours to go out and buy flowers?"

Yes, some things are essential.
I finished this oil painting 24 by 24 on canvas this week.
