"Simply Spring"

Nothing says Spring has arrived quite like tulips.  This has been an odd year in Michigan with Spring arriving a good month ahead of schedule, but as is the usual course in Michigan, the cold has to settle back in a few times before saying quits for the season.  These poor tulips were huddled quietly closed until I brought them indoors to paint...They were opening so fast I hardly had time to paint them!
When you think about it, Tulips are a rather simple flower.  Oh, there are special varieties, but the old fashioned tulips are simple...elegant, but simple.  But sometimes beauty is best in the simplest of forms.  So I named this one, "Simply Spring".
