January Tulips

9 x 6 Oil on Archival Board

A good friend brought these beautiful red tulips to me for Christmas.  I am not really comfortable painting flowers, but they were so lovely I had to try.  I'm not sure why flowers intimidate me, but I approached this subject as I've been doing lately with everything.. as just shapes.  The name of certain objects seems to get in the way of just expressing what I see and feel.  This still life was done at my kitchen table using my little Gorilla box…on a cold, gray, snowy day.
