pretty pretty....I like the background color... is it like a dusty dark green?
This is absolutely stunning! White flower with black background make a superb combo..:) Not only pink but yellow stripes are also making the flower more attractive and fresh..:) I am glad I found your blog!
Gorgeous!! I don't know..... it looks awfully hard to paint white! You are the master!!
Wow! and again wow! this is beautiful, R. So sculptural and delicate all at once. gorgeous work.
this is beautiful, good title! I do like the realism and the nearly center placement
Thanks Sheila...the background is a very dark green made of many layers of transparent glaze.Thanks, Megha, Manon, and Liz!Thanks Sandra; I don't get too fancy when naming flower paintings; 'Marilyn' is simply the name the tulip breeders gave this variety, so they get the credit.
This is really a lovely painting, R! The touch of pink in the flower sets off the deep green background perfectly.

Beautiful painting,simply stunning, background is lovely the way it lightens to the right hand corner.
I love both the flower & the background!
Thanks Don, Jill, Diana, and Carol!
what a beauty ! about the cow check with the city arts department. you can do it by yourselves or with a group.
Very beautiful, R..
I really like the drama of the contrast; also you use grays very well, helps people to look longer and see the color.
Wow, this is so dramatic R. Love all the subtle changes.
Hi R., I'm having trouble leaving comments. Don't know why. I think this flower's name and the lovely white unfurling remind me of an upside down image of Marilyn Munroe's dress in The Seven Year Itch.I thought that might be why the flower is called Marilyn. Strikingly beautiful painting.Take care,Barbara
Gorgeous work! What really gets me is your ability to paint a "white" flower with so much color!
The white is just right. Tender treatment of a delicate subject. Thank you.
Thank you for your kind comments! They always make my day.
