Peony II

 
6X6
 
85

This is another peony painting where I chose to go very abstract and yet maintain some semblance of the look and feel of the flower.

The colors are so yummy on this one .
I enjoyed seeing your brush strokes and the fact that this takes up the whole 6 inches. Really impressive.

You painted my dream painting. It even has the weight of the peony ..the life of the peony and the emotional range of the peony. Linda...Hats off to you woman.

I left a post but I am not sure it is going to be posted. I'll check back rather than write it again right now.

This is what I have always wanted and still strive to do. I can feel the weight and the heft of the flower. the saturated color is an inspiration to me. I must buy that book you are working from . The cool palette fascinates me...I will look back in my email and find the book...amazon must have it. I hope...Your hard work and study is showing.

Hi Jo! Yes Amazon does have the book and if not I know that Alibris does also! Thank you so much for your kind words. I think your peonies are fabulous...you were the inspiration for me. One of your peony paintings shows up on the "peony" when you google it!:)

Thank you, Nancy! I think it is pretty abstract...but I enjoyed painting this one a lot.

Jo Mackenzie said...

Linda I want to buy this peony from you......Can I do it through paypal?
Oh and I ordered a copy of the book...it was strange because it varied from 85 dollars to nine dollars. How can that possibly be. It must have to do with when it was printed. Both are hard cover. I want to experiment with those cool tones.

I also noticed that the books vary in prices and by quite a bit usually. I don't really know why they vary so much! I hope that you enjoy the book. I added a paypal button if you are interested in this painting. I am glad you mentioned it because I am going to start adding buttons.
