First Peony

First Peony
5"x7" oil on wrap
framing optional...standard size


A long wait in Ohio for the peony blooms.
Such a cold the blooms are have
burst open and are gone in a flash with the 90*
temps. Preferring to paint from life,
I had to paint fast to keep up with the
opening buds.

An artist not only has to be a great observer,
but patient!
