I painted this in the dead of winter. The only available flowers were tulips shipped in to Nova Scotia from a greenhouse on Prince Edward Island.

I listened to a reading of Jane Eyre while working on this and it definitely affected my colour sense! The victorian gothic love tragedy takes place in a rambling stone house, Thornfield Hall, on the moors of England. The scenery is dark, windswept and haunting.
