How Does Your Garden Grow?
One of my favorite flowers in the whole world to paint ~ is peonies! They fill the studio with a sweet perfume and retire in a graceful shattering of petals when their time is done. They reach for the sky and sweep away the clouds with caps of tiny feathers. Their only fault: They are fleeting. How to tell the story of a peony? The peony has many feminine qualities, but her anatomy can be formed in two simple steps – the round ball or “fist” of petals, and a frilly party skirt, perfect for a night on the town. PS – don’t forget the feathers, a girl can’t be seen without a few of those!
