This parrot tulip seemed to be crying out loud to be painted so I obliged! :) I entitled it Look At Me because a flamboyant creature like this couldn't possibly be saying anything else but that!

It's from a photo by Joke Schotting (http://www.artwanted.com/artist.cfm?artid=14936) and used with her kind permission. Acrylics on canvas paper 9x8.

Thanks for looking and C&C welcome.

Beautiful work! I can see why this flower would be tempting, though maybe also intimidating.

Yes, it was intimidating. It really drove me crazy at times, but the more it did that the more I wanted to master it.

Thank you all for your comments.:)

That's a great painting. You've done well with the colors.

That flower straddles the fence between awesome and scary. It almost appears to have teeth. Please don't take that comment as if I was referring to the painting. You did a wonderful job.

Beautiful work...love the color and the way it looks like you could stick your nose right in there. Very nicely done...I have sooo much to learn. Flora scares me to death...painting wise that is :D

GREAT! It wouldn't have been half as intense if you would have painted more than one blossom. The close up work is what makes this so striking.
