What is your favorite color?  Mine is blue. I love a nice bright blue! But on canvas, I love red, oh yeah!   Powerful, joyful and intense. These guys' red is even brighter than it looks here. Maybe one day I'll load a better photo. (Today I took at least 20 shots, and not was great!)

Something about these tulips: they tricked me! The whole time I had the feeling I was painting poppies, I even had a cute name for the poppy painting, then I came to reality and had to face the fact tat they were tulips! So I settled for making them Italian, like their mama. :)
