At the local home improvement center, on their 50% off rack, there was a beat up box with a ball of earth covering some bulbs. I rescued the orphans and planted them in a pot. A few weeks later, I had glorious red tulips standing tall and proud. Against a black canvas, the bright red blooms and green blades appeared as if by magic from my hands.
This is a work of oil painted on canvas, 11x14 in a gold frame.
