This is the last of the tulips for a while. I had fun with the composition on this one. I felt like the little one was saying "hi" to the larger one - thus the title. I was also pleased with the contrast of the bright red against the black shaded stone wall.
The reference photo was from that same gorgeous day of the tulips - March 31, 2010. Seeing the stone terrace wall gives you a better sense that this was taken at Duke Gardens. I may on occasion back away from my intimate moments to give a wider scope of the gardens. Something to think about for future paintings.
