Original Oil Painting Fireworks Tulip


Firecracker Tulip

10" x 10"
Painted on a gessobord.

Well, it is the next day and I am calling it done. If I work on it more I feel it might look over-worked.  My goal was to capture the sheen the tulip petals have. I am happy with my attempt at capturing one of  Mother Nature's beauties. I hope others agree.

I also re-titled this painting from Wild and Crazy Tulip to Firecracker Tulip. It was painted around the Fourth of July and seems to fit that title more. Thanks Deirdre McDowell for the idea!!

I was working from a photo I took at Evergreen. I posted it below.
