Spring Red, by Canadian Artist Kim Blair

It certainly feels like spring is in the air. The birds are chirping earlier in the morning, the temperatures have  been mild, and the days are longer. Yes, I know that I could be living in a dream world at the moment... winter could still have a few tricks to play on us here in Edmonton.  Yet, when I purchased these red tulips with the thick borders of yellow around each petal... it gave me hope.  Spring Red is full of promise and hope for the warmer weather to arrive soon.
I purchased two fat bundles of these tulips to display in our kitchen... you can never have too many tulips.

8x10 oil on canvas.

Kim, your paintings have such a beautiful intensity. I really like your series painted on foil. What a great idea.
