Peony WIP

You saw the start of this and I just have not gotten back to was the beginning of a demo at a workshop. Today I took the time to block in some more of the background. Now with a couple of days work it can be done which is going to be so nice...finally catching up after all that has gone on! Just to remind you, this peony has lost all it's petals and it leaves these terrific teddy bear like pods...which I love! Not sure of a title at this point but maybe by next time I will have something...any suggestions?

Hi Janie,

I'm so glad things have slowed down for you, I could hear you exhale! LOL
I love this painting. I think it's telling us to just wait til next year! It's really a beautiful painting.

Thanks Phyl...I still have a ways to go on the peony but it is smaller...It is just a 1/2 sheet and boy does that make a difference! HA! Plus feeling good!

Janie, this is the BEST! The lighting is just breathtaking. Honestly, I just don't know how you do it!
