The Colors of Embers in the Fire...
“But I have always thought that these tulips must have had names. They were red, and orange and red, and red and orange and yellow, like the ember in a nursery fire of a winter's evening. I remember them.” ― Neil Gaiman, Coraline
My lighting in the studio is bad. Terry has fixed it since this was taken. But I think you can see where this painting is headed. It is full of joy and bursting with colors... the colors of embers in a fire. This is the feeling of color and celebration I want. Not the fire but the depth of those brilliant colors in a field of blooming tulips.
For you have been my hope, Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth. Psalm 71:5
