Artist's description:

This picture came about from a cold and dark January. My wife had just bought some tulips to brighten her day and as the days passed they started to fade, but they inspired me to paint them, so I went and bought another two bunches. £2.50 a bunch seemed so cheap in comparison to the way they raise your spirit's and bring joy. So I gave one bunch to Romina and the other I put in a little white ewer and took to the studio, placing them on the table while I sorted through my painting gear. I looked up and noticed them against a cast I have in the studio of the horses head from the Elgin marbles (or Parthenon). And the composition seemed to work. I just added the newspaper and then began to paint.
