Spring Fire

Spring Fire is a continuation of my painting series of gorgeous red tulips.   I took numerous reference photos of them and each time I view them my heart races a little from the energetic reds or orange tones. The colours are even more vibrant in person and the paint texture (thickness) here and there really adds to the three dimensional feeling of this little grouping of tulips.
A bit of spring to hang all year round.

Gorgeous - they thaw me out just looking at the rich, warm color!
