Tulips in Candlelight

8x10" Oil on Linen Panel

I enjoyed painting tulips, so here they are again.  Tulips take on a life of their own.  They seem to be carrying on a kind of flower dance, especially when I confuse them with candlelight.  Speaking of candles, did I mention that painting candlelight is a blast?  With three candles, you get three sources of light, casting shadows in three different directions.  Fun!  And, oh yes, when you let a candle burn down to a cloth, you get fire!!  Good thing I look intently at my subject.
