Orange Crush Tulips


Orange Crush Tulips by Nancy Medina

Orange Crush Tulips is a continuation of my fling with small paintings this week, while the large one leans accusingly against a wall nearby, almost finished. I am not a master tulip painter, just a practitioner, so I've left the bigger image under here if you'd like to click and see my tulip travails a bit more up close and personal. These tulips are some of the brightest that bloomed last March at the Dallas Arboretum. Why is it the most beautiful flowers have such short seasons?

I agree, Nancy! Not only is the season short, but once you pick them, they last a very short time. I see you are fighting the winter blues with orange!

I don't think there is a flower alive that you can't handle, Nancy. These are gorgeous (and the thumbnail below with the tulips is just absolutely amazing)! You are right about the prettiest flowers having short seasons. Take my favorite - lilacs - for example...
