Peonies Still Life

Peonies – 11" x 14" (28 x 35.5 cm) – Oil on Canvas

Hello friends,

I am so happy it is June. The weather has been just gorgeous, with the sun being warm but not too hot, with enough of a breeze that I can keep the windows and patio door open and the house still staying cool. Last week I planted some Cosmos and some have already started to sprout, the other herbs and flowers are taking their time, but I am patient.

While enjoying the weather I have also been having some fun in the studio and I finished my peonies painting just in time because after I took my lunch break today, half of the petals fell off the front flowers. Phew!

When the weather is sunny and pleasant I always feel I am more productive. Does the weather affect you positively as well?

Have a wonderful afternoon, Liz

I'm always in a much better mood in the spring when I can open my windows and let a breeze into my studio.

Your peonies are vibrant and beautiful. The blue shadow areas look great against the pinks.

Kerri, I really appreciate your comment. I spent more time working out the shadow shapes then the bright petal side.

It's been so long, Liz. What wonderful paintings you are doing. I just brought home a bunch of white peonies with the intent of painting them tomorrow. I think you did a beautiful job.
