Reaching 6" X 12" Pastel on Pastelbord

                                                                              
Tulips have always been one of my favorite flowers, I guess because I grew up living near many commercially grown tulip farms. Springtime was a kaleidoscope of color when the tulips blossomed. This tulip variety is unknown to me. They resemble Ballerina Tulips and Burgundy Tulips, but please let me know if you can identify the  correct name.

  1. Those are really gorgeous! They almost look transparent.

    I am clueless about flowers so no help there. Whatever their name is they are beautiful:)

    1. Thank you, Libby. The colors are what grabbed me first. That deep, dark purple. I still haven't found the name of them, but I'll just enjoy them for their color and shape.

  2. I wish I knew the name of this tulip, Carol! The rich color is so beautiful... Tulips have always been a favorite of mine as well... The way it flows it should definitely be called Ballerina Tulips...

    1. I agree with you, Hilda, about the name. I've always liked tulips, too. Just wish they hung around longer than they do, but that's the way of beautiful things.

    1. I appreciate your kind words, Diana. The light blue with the purple really was inspiring when I first saw it. Thank you for writing.
