Spring Survivor

A nice little flower study - I was thinking about painting some daffodils but when I went outside to get one the weather had already taken its toll and they were toast, however I did find a few tulips in the flower bed and decided to paint this one. I really like how this one turned out with a minimum of brushwork - not over-worked and a simplicity about it. I cheated a little - the neck / stem on this was twice as long as you see here, but it doesn't make for a very good painting so I shortened it. Also I change my dimensions - this is a 5x6.
