Peony Revisited

These were peonies that were rejected in the choosing of the ommission paintings.  I painted 4 extra and so I had plenty for the customer to choose from.  I decided to go back into the unfinished paintings and beef them up a bit.  THEY SOLD  I am very happy with the way that they turned out.  What do you think?  I think I need to let things rest for a while before deciding they are done.  By the end of the commission marathon I was tired and so they were not as good as the earlier ones.  A week away and fresh eyes really helped.

Abstract for the Fun of It!

After working on all of those peonies I just wanted to cut loose and play around with a few abstract pieces.  Color.......just for the fun of it.  Do you ever feel like that?  After working really hard and staying focused to complete a deadline it is such a pleasure to simply play.
