April 12 - Sign of Spring (Tulip)
Ever get a spring cold? I've got one now, and it's slowed me down a bit. Couldn't get the commissions finished, so I gently lifted out a lovely tulip from a bouquet and put it in this bud vase. Of course I went to Balboa Park today, and walked through the botanical gardens--perhaps that's why this tulip whispered, "Paint me tonight". In any case, I hope you'll enjoy the intensity of color against many different grays, showing that, to make a painting sing, contrast is one good way to do it.
Original oil, 7 x 5 inches on gallery-wrap (no framing needed). $100
