Orange Tulips

I have a "thing" for orange tulips.  Especially masses of big ones crammed in clay pots like British garden queen Carol Kline pots them up. Naturally I never got around to planting any last fall so I've settled for some from the farm stand

 I was going to put them on my table in a big white pitcher but my mantle was looking a little bare.  It is a narrow mantle, too skinny for my pitcher so I took my old bottles out and put one tulip in each.

BTW - I think tulips are the hardest flower to paint.  I may have a go later this week at painting some just for the challenge of it.

I haven't seen your tulip paintings... but in light of your comments that they were "hardest" to paint, I couldn't help but wonder if you'd tried peonies!
