Black tulip

What the artist says about this work:
Dark purple flowers against some grass. An original painting fresh from my organic garden where tulips and dandelions live happily side by side on the side of a little wild meadow. Done with professional quality acrylic paint on thick watercolour card. Expressive, thick brushstrokes.

Had to move them from Ebay as they are introducing another terrible rule. I definitely know now Ebay is THE MOST UNPLEASANT AND UNFRIENDLY SITE ON WEB. Pity there is no real alternative.
 
Done a black tulip and dandelions in the garden painting, continuing working on "17 faces" acrylic and ink painting.
