Tulips and the cup shape of their blooms show up in many of my paintings. They are said to symbolize perfect love, which is fitting, because that is my relationship with color. It is as Henry Miller said, "To paint is to love again.
I love color and the physicality of the paint, whether it's thick or fluid. It's always colors that move me and there is an adventure of discovery, of seeing how they look on the painting surface and I work to place them so an energetic balance is achieved in combination with the deliciousness of the pigments.
NO PRINTS EVER
I do not license the images of my paintings for reproduction in any medium, so the original you purchase from me remains the one and only.
In order to give you the best shipping price, this canvas will be removed from its stretchers to ship rolled in a heavy-duty tube. If you prefer to receive your painting ready to hang to the US it would be $100, UK $170 (estimates).
