Peonies in Water

"Peonies in Water"
12" x 12"
Oil on canvas panel
I gathered every last bud and bloom from the bushes outside my back door, as if rescuing them from something horrific. Wind and rain was forecasted, and we know what those two can do to peony cups balancing on spindly stems. Yikes! 

This crystal bowl is just the right size to contain peonies.  I don't think I'll tire of using it.  The roundness of the vessel repeats the shape of the blossoms, and it creates a lovely dark base to my paintings, too.

Find this one, too, on my gallery page of Dailypaintworks.  It's also for sale there.

Thanks for visiting.
