a daily musing about my family, my life, but mostly about art - how i will try to paint every day - even while my house is falling down around my ears and my five grandchildren are clamoring to paint with me. thank god my husband likes to cook and that he and nellie and ruby, our golden retrievers, have infinite patience. we'll see.....

so here's my first peony painting
so this is 18x18...I fiddled so much getting this set up.. pears?.. no pears?..leaves?...this first one I turned the vase lengthwise..if that makes sense...I just filled the vase to the brim and also stuck one pink peony from my own yard in there!...these are so gorgeous.. I did these on Thursday and by now the blossoms are really falling apart.. it's just a shame that peony season is so damn short!!
