Rembrandt Tulips on a Wood Box

This was my last tulip painting I was able to focus on this past spring before the temperatures got hot and every tulip lost its vigor. I had been admiring the tulips blooming in the garden and was somewhat hesitant to strip them from their place when I reminded myself that if they were painted, their beauty would remain for additional enjoyment for days to come.

So with this painting, I am sharing all that I love and believe is special about Rembrandt tulips, basking in the deep variegated color and the beautiful and graceful shapes of the flowers that split between subdued curves and whimsical arabesques.
