Tulips on Fire

One of the best and the most amazing things for the Artist is when he/she can share the art with other people. And it is always great when people admire your art, and when people want your art – is the most grateful moments. Although, for me personally it is hard sometimes to detach from my paintings. That’s probably why I sell more prints than paintings ;)… Original paintings are like babies. But hey, children suppose to grow up and eventually they will make outside the nest.
Today one of my favorite customers sent me an e-mail with the subject: ” I have to have it!” She chose this painting of tulips. When I painted this one I really wanted to show the sun showing through the petals penetrating them through red making it pink. The game of three colors (red, pink, and yellow) reminded me of a fire. And I called this painting “Tulips on Fire”. I am glad that now these tulips will sparkle in someones’ house 🙂

  1. Hi, Irina! Thank you for sharing the beautiful work and an artist's dilemma. So, in my mind, I secretly pray for my works, “Get nice step mothers/fathers.”

  2. I'm sure the new owner will love and cherish it!
    My originals are what go, as I don't do prints – but I liken it to someone adopting a rescue. I'm glad to see them get a new home where they're cherished!

  3. Those dutch girls are just dancing in the sun. Beautiful job. I feel the same way about my paintings being like my babies and so far I have always painted a second one to sell or give away. I own all my originals for the time being. I don't know how long that will last.
