12 x 16" original oil
White flowers are some of the prettiest to paint. The warm and cool variations show up readily, and overall they feel fresh and clean.
I have vivid memories of fishing Missouri lakes for bass, blue gill, orange roughie and croppies while seeing the lake water shimmer off into the distance. The tips of these tulips are catching the white sunlight and it reminds me of that shimmering water.
The dark background dresses up this painting; it feels formal to me.
