"White Tulips"

 Stepping out of my very restrictive box to do a still life. I find painting still lifes as exciting as watching paint dry, hence I never do them.  These white tulips at my sisters house with the modern black glass wall oven behind and a light source in a room behind to the right as well as another to the left of the scene was to good to pass up.  Start to finish 1 1/2 hours.  I was channeling Matisse. Hope I didn't disappoint him. 12x9 oil
