20x16 oil on stretched linen
It's 11:00 pm and I JUST finished this painting and thought I might as well post it now, who needs sleep right?? Each year I do what ever it takes to paint my peonies who's lives are oh so short! With my last weekend's plein air workshop and my peonies deciding to open while I was off teaching, by the time I got to paint them they were getting pretty droopy. However, their heavy droopiness provided a nice "lyrical" composition for me, hence it's name "Lyrical Beauties!" I did photograph process of this piece but will post that at a later time. For now, I hope you enjoy my latest piece!
