One of my friends from Amsterdam had posted pictures of tulip fields on Facebook. This little Fiery Tulip caught my attention and it inspired me to use my oil paints. See how this flower is glowing from within !!

Here’s more about one of my favorite flowers – the tulip, from Wikepedia:
The tulip originated as a Persian wildflower in the 1500s. They were extensively cultivated at that time. Since then, the tulip has become a symbol for many different things. Each different color tulip can have a different meaning.
The meaning of tulips is generally perfect love.
Red tulips are most strongly associated with true love, while purple symbolizes royalty. The yellow tulip is a common expression for cheerful thoughts and sunshine. White tulips are used to claim worthiness or to send a message of forgiveness. Variegated tulips, once among the most popular varieties due to their striking color patterns, represent beautiful eyes.
