Peonies are not in season and I admit that this is a gorgeous silk flower that has great color. I am grateful that I finished this painting with time to spare because I have 2 pies to make for tomorrow. Thanksgiving! I wish you all a very blessed Thanksgiving and a joyful holiday season!

Beautiful, beautiful! I would want to go back in and start of my failings! But you are brave and leave the gorgeous strokes to speak for themselves. Simplicity and intensity. Love it.
Happy Thanksgiving to you guys down there...we have ours in Oct. I used to live in the States and we always did a big Thanksgiving too-and I always loved watching the parades on tv...a secret vice!

Absolutely beautiful! I love the deep colors in the throat of the flower, the muted tones in the shadow and the bright highlights where the light hits the petals. Great job!

beautiful Linda...I like the impressionist treatment..these are not easy flowers to paint, silk or real. good job!

Catherine Jeffrey said...

Lovely pastel colors. Really enjoy those energetic brush strokes! Happy Thanksgiving!

An absolutely amazing rendition--the color is perfect. I would love to learn how to paint like you can.

Hi Linda.
Beautiful impressionistic Painting, exactly how I love to see the paint, plenty of brilliant thick paint, boldly placed. All the best Linda.
