I created this painting of a Pink Tulip because my wife loves tulips and she requested it. I really paid attention to the under-painting on this one and I feel the blue background really pops the pink tulip off the canvas. If you like this one, you’ll probably like my Pink Rose, Sunflower and Iris, too.
