Big Peony, Little Roses

Big Peony, Little Roses
5"x7" original oil on gallery wrap linen
framing optional...standard size


At one of my art group critiques
a fellow artist said the Spring Bouquet
Painting (see May 22, 08 post)
reminded her of Edouard Manet's small bouquets in crystal vases.
Wow, what a compliment!
Most of those paintings were
evidently painted in his later years.
His friends would bring him flowers,
because his age didn't allow him to
plein air paint or get out much.
Sounds like he had great friends.
You will see more of this theme.
I love to painting flowers and crystal.
