Its no surprise that I love peonies. This painting was inspired by these stunning blooms. Every summer I peruse the flower markets near me for the best peonies. I choose ones that will give me a couple of days painstakingly photographing them before they lose their stunning petals. I just loved this combination of the peony in full bloom with all the other peonies in the background adding contrast to this gorgeous flower. Peonies are very sort after flowers. They are a flower that denotes love, luxury, are given in friendship, are really sort after for weddings & especially bridal bouquets. This exquisite painting is rich in colour & rich in emotion.
