Two Peonies - One Open

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.



6 x 8 original oil still life painting of two pink peonies lying on the tabletop. One is just opening, and one is completely open. The peonies are fragrant and lush, and remarkably sturdy. I like the way the light touches the flowers - I used a cardboard shield to control the shadows and throw the background into shadow. The shadows give a nice sense of volume. Painted from a still life I set up in my studio. This painting is painted on a gessoboard panel and then mounted on a wide gray backerboard and finally framed in a black wooden frame. Outside dimension approximately 10" x 12"

    Now the sky is finally blue but for several weeks, looking at the painting was my best reminder that spring would eventually come. It is lovely

Shipping policies

I ship via USPS. I ship one to five days after I receive payment. I pack my paintings in cardboard so that the surface is protected and then I insure each painting and ship it in a Priority Mail box that generally takes 2-3 days to reach the buyer. So a total of three to eight days to get to you after you have made your purchase.
Please make sure that your address is OK for USPS.
