When I was a little kid, my family would visit the spectacular celebration of tulips at the Arboretum. The fields went on for what seemed like forever from my short vantage point. I would imagine how hard it would be to try to walk through them gently, without breaking any stalks. Impossible. 

Here, I’ve painted the tulip fields from my childhood memory and invited a very famous Minnesota resident and his companion, on a dare –  to tread as lightly as possible through the tulips. Good luck Paul and Babe, I know it’s impossible!
