Garden Tulips

12.1.2018-015

These garden tulips originally came to me from a florist’s shop planted in a painted bowl but in full bloom!  I enjoyed them immensely and painted several canvases of them.  This painting is sold but you can see others by clicking here.    This painting is on a panel.

Panels were used by many of the Old Masters and are often preferred by many artists because of the rigid, smooth surface.  A  panel is easy to fit in almost all standard frames and framing a panel can be a do it yourself project.  It can also be mailed easily.

Stretched canvas, on the other hand, can fit into standard frames only with special clips. Many people hang stretched canvas without a frame.  “Gallery wrap” canvas is stapled to the back of a two inch wooden frame and hung just as it is.  Artists often paint the sides of gallery wrap.
