The dancers of Whim W'Him, Seattle Contemporary Dance Company, express the powerful movement of dance as well as the strength and beauty of women. The central female dancer is heroic. She is lifted up by the company and reaches toward heaven. This piece will be on display at the Cornish Playhouse at the Seattle Center from January 20- 28th. Don't miss it!

I was commissioned to paint roses for a friend. I decided to tell a story: There's been a party. A special party. There are roses on the table. Perhaps we drank too much. The wine has spilled. And I am with my friend, the lady in red.

“Tula is passionate about her art, and that makes all the difference. Her heartwarming portrait of a Nepali couple brings me back to these wonderful people. Her thoughtfulness and intuition are extraordinary.”

"Tula Holmes elegantly reflects the exotic glow and glorious angularity of a Balinese dancer in this gorgeous painting.  Her striking gaze shines with the concentration required to perform her precise and mesmerizing movements.  Tula's figure is like a magical bird fluttering in mid flight."

No, Santa was not my model. I took an existing portrait and added the costume. He's the same figure that I painted in Ned's Friend.

This painting began as a portrait painted in Henry Stinson's studio. It was filled with such vibrant color, that I repainted it as my St. Patrick's Day leprechaun.
