Red is such a difficult color to paint, especially the nuances and shades which can quickly become just a big red splotch. In this piece however, the nuances in tone are very, very evident.  There are at least 6 different red hues within the petals ranging from pinks to magenta!  Also in this painting, the fine details of the blossom petal are evident. The dew gently caresses the sides as they fall away. And the array of reds simply cannot be duplicated on your computer monitor as well.

The is one of the world's most easily recognized and loved flowers. They are not too elegant, too romantic, too big, too small, or too bright; the tulip is always just right. Tulips express genuine coziness and comfort in all of the right ways.

The tulip originated over ten decades ago in Persia and Turkey, where it played a significant role in the art and culture of the time. Most likely commenting on the Turkish tradition of wearing tulips in one’s turban, Europeans mistakenly gave tulips their name, which comes from the Persian word meaning turban. As Europeans began taking to tulips, the flower’s popularity spread quickly, particularly in the Netherlands where a phenomenon dubbed tulip mania set in at one point during the 17th century. Tulips became so highly-prized that prices were sent soaring and markets crashing. Tulips are now grown throughout the world, but people still identify cultivated varieties as "Dutch tulips."

The meaning of tulips is generally perfect love. Like many flowers, different colors of tulips also often carry their own significance. Red tulips are most strongly associated with true love.
