I managed to squeeze in another small painting over the weekend, this time different view of that trio of peonies. I exaggerated the yellow here a bit, wanting it to pop against the cool colors in the shadowy petals. I love peonies so much, and these were the first three blooms produced by our single peony plant. It kind of lags behind the other neighborhood peonies when it's time to bloom. I monitor it on a daily basis in late May, noting every change and even rejoicing when ants appear on its big, fat buds.
