During the early days of quarantine, my roommate and I decided to have a paint night. I saw this photo on a random Twitter account and immediately wanted to recreate it. Compared to the original photo, I changed the color of the tulips and added some extra sunset clouds in the background.

At the beginning of the Pandemic, I was struggling to find something that could serve as a creative outlet while being trapped at home and studying for STEP 1. I have made quite a bit of 2D and 3D pieces, but I had never tried my hand at building miniatures. I found a kit online and decided to take my time making each individual piece.
