Original floral oil paining of Bush Peonies, 11" x 14"

"Peonies ala prima"

OK. I got a little carried away with color here. Maybe it's my head cold. Anyway, my good friend dropped a bunch of these humongous Bush Peonies on my porch and then, standing a good ten feet away from my contagious self, suggested I paint them for therapy.

These flowers are so huge, they don't look real. And the color! head is so stuffy I probably sniffed too much of my paint fumes but couldn't tell. After a brief "ala prima" (that means "all at once") session, this little gem emerged. Not my usual, but then I'm not my usual self.

This would definitely brighten up a bathroom, kitchen or dark hallway. Put your sunglasses on.
