Peonies and More Peonies !

"Peony Delight"
6" x 12" Oil on canvas

This was a delight to paint!   Peonies are so regal and in my book are the "queen" of flowers.   They have been cultivated in China for more than 2000 years and are the floral symbol of that country.  Romans first brought peonies to England about the year 1200.   

Below is a considerably better photograph of the painting "Glorious Abundance" which I first posted on Sunday, January 22, 2012.

It is difficult for all the true colors in the white peonies to show up in the photograph, but this image above is pretty close.
