I survived my first full weekend of signing posters for the tulip fans in Skagit Valley last weekend and looking forward to 2, or maybe 3 more weekends there, depending on the bloom, which was early this year. I’ll be at TULIP TOWN Saturday April 9, Sunday April 17, and maybe April 23 just outside the poster shop from 11am – 3pm. I’ll be at ROOZENGAARDE Sunday April 10,Saturday April 16 and maybe April 24 in the big tent behind the gift shop from 11am-3pm. Its crazy busy on the weekends with people from all over the world visiting to see the tulips and order their bulbs for next fall.
Tulip Town: 15002 Bradshaw Rd, Mt Vernon, WA 98273
RoozenGaarde: 15867 Beaver Marsh Rd, Mt Vernon, WA 98273
Diving hint: Avoid driving through the Mt Vernon Kincaid exit to get to these beautiful fields and gardens. Go around and approach RoozenGaarde from the south and west, and approach Tulip Town from Rt 20 to avoid traffic jams unless you are early in the morning.
Be sure to go inside the shops to see more of my Floralscapes for sale along with the poster products. Roozengaard Gift Shop is offering my matted and some framed archival giclee prints of my paintings in the front of the shop with the festival fare and some original sumi paintings of my tulips and irises in another section of the shop, pictured below.
Tulip Town is a temporary exhibit during the festival and my work is presented in a section of the shop. I have some original watercolors, framed archival giclee prints, some cropped prints of my Floralscapes and a rack of cards.
Again, if you saw my last post, don’t miss my exhibit of new tulip paintings at the Scott Milo Gallery in Anacortes while you are in the area. They are open every day but Sunday from 10:30am to 4:30pm. The display looks great and you can see the newest work from the window if you are only there on Sunday when they are closed. Lots of flowers for all this spring!
