Taking the Stage

20 x 30"

I named this piece Taking the Stage because the tulips look like they are all crowding forward for a curtain call, the spotlight hitting some but missing others. I have so much fun personifying tulips through my artwork and titles.

I spent the longest on the bright yellow-orange tulip in the foreground, probably an hour and a half. It was a challenge to portray the reflective and transparent light. I love the zoomed in cropping and the peekaboo of the bottom red tulip's center.
