Peony in Watercolor

A great adventure for a three day weekend

My stash of Kilimanjaro watercolor paper has been calling

Wendy Sinclair has kindly shared so many photos for Artists to use as reference
and this white peony is a favorite.

I used it for a smaller version but now want to explore painting on a larger scale 

half sheet and frame  at 18x24  

Toying with the idea of planting Peonies in my yard
but until that happens
will plant a few on my walls

This will last a bit longer than the real one

and bring a little outside in

Almost done...

Ready to mat and frame...

and hang!

Looking for a new normal...

 painting from my photos
and revisiting Georgia O'Keeffe
dealing with the quiet 
and empty
