Tulip bud, purple, ©Jill Rosoff 2009 4 1/2″ x 6 “, sold
It’s Spring! The world is in bloom. And the tulip plants are so reasonable at the local Trader Joe’s. This little intimate, postcard-sized study of one tulip blossom and the surrounding leaves shows of just one bloom of the plant. The shape of the flower is unmistakable, and yet the petals take on very organic, almost lip-like forms. The stamen and pistils are so fragile, protected by the petals of the flower.
