Peonies: Pink Possibilities

June 25, 2012

Bucket of peonies at the U-District Farmers’ Market

Peonies, ruffle after ruffle

“Imagine the hard knot of its bud, all that pink possibility.  Day by day it visibly swells, doubles, until one morning in June, it unfolds, ruffle after ruffle, an explosion of silk.”
— from “Peony” by Barbara Crooker

    I stumbled upon your blog and have to say how beautiful your watercolors are. Watercolor is my favorite paint style and you have a marvelous talent with re-creation of your subjects as well as the color choices. It’s been a pleasure to “snoop” through your work!

  3. Love all these pink peonies! Your compositions are lovely.
