Here’s another peony. They are still blooming. :-)
My FAVORITE flower is peonies. I love how they look but I hate how we only get them about two weeks a year. During the time they are blooming Allen brings me some almost everyday. He has some beautiful growing at his place.
Yesterday I decided to try paint one every day while they are blooming. Here is the first one.
A few weeks ago I posted about taking photos of the wonderful flowers we are seeing now both in nature and arrangements we have during this time of the year. (Read that here.) I got back to painting some of those recently. I will have to wrap this one up soon as it is about 80% complete.
There is so much subject matter to paint at this time of the year. Thank goodness we have a camera at hand at all times!
When you teach art, especially if you have Paint Parties, you tend to paint the same subject matter more than once.
I often paint a sample that I can use when promoting the class/party. And then I paint it again while teaching in the class/party. And if it is a popular piece there may be more than one group that paints it.
That is the case with these poppies. So far I have painted it at least 6 times. Here are four versions with the size listed below. This one has been particularly popular because it’s pretty and it is easy for people to be successful when painting it, even if they are painting for the first time!
Here are my Mother’s Day flowers. I have taken reference photos at several angles so I can paint them soon.
Happy Mother’s Day!
