Red Tulips

9x12 oil on cotton canvas panel
$150.00 (email me if interested)

It's Easter at HEB! (oops, for those of you that do not live in Texas and surrounding states, HEB is our main grocery store) The flowers are out. You have tulips in every color, lilies, also in every color, roses, sunflowers and of course chocolate. I have always felt tulips were the only flowers that can look so graceful even when they are slumped over. I could visualize the painting in my head before I began. I wanted to show a slight angle and curve to the tulips in the vase. I have used this same green drape in another flower painting. I feel as though this green gives the paintings a quiet, calm to the flowers.
