If I can’t have sunshine, I’ll have red tulips.

redtulipswebIt’s been cold and gray and wet. I’ve been working on some paintings for a workshop I’m taking that have not been to my taste or style. All dark backgrounds and chiaroscuro effect still lifes. It was getting me down a bit. I decided I needed to paint something small and bright and cheerful to get out of my funk. This is the way I like my tulips best, not standing straight and tight like regimented soldiers but open and blowzy and bright. I feel better now. 🙂  You can see close-ups or buy it at Daily Paintworks. 6×6 oil on panel.
