Folk Art Painting - Tulip Bird



An acrylic painting on canvas 9 1/4" x 12 3/4"

I used to be a quilt maker and it shows in this painting. It reminds me of applique work. I enjoyed painting this. I limited my palette here to mostly shades of red and blue but the overall effect is very colorful.

  2. Thank you patchworkdelights, I used to make quilts before, I gave up to concentrate on painting - I still love patchwork and quilting so I often incorporate this in my painting instead.
