23 x 23" original oil
I have finished this latest painting of some tulips from last years Thanksgiving Point Tulip Festival. I remember finding these tulips and being so excited to paint the ones with the red stripes. The color palette of this painting reminds me of an old restaurant in town where I grew up where my family would eat Chinese food. There was a lot of dark, lacquered wood as well as little red lanterns and yellow lights. Even the tulip going out of the frame on the upper left edge reminds me of an open parasol illustrated with a Geisha.
I plan on having this painting in my upcoming show in Salt Lake on November 8th. Click here for some more details.
The easiest parts of this painting were the red stripes . The most difficult was the white blossom. Whites are such chameleons.
