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.


  1. wow Catherine this is really beautiful! It does certainly remind you of a quilt!.

  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.
