24" x 36" oil
I chose this title because these tulips are standing together alike and tall, like a family grouping. It's also a nice nod to the institution of families as close units, as dysfunctional and wonderful as they all are.
I really like how the light is shining on these tulips from the front. Usually my pieces have back-lighting or strong side-lighting. The light coming from the front makes these tulips a lot more confrontational and upright. Couple that with the burnt red background and visually it's very vibrant.
