Oil on canvas

I LOVE peonies. Love love love them. But they are a mystery to my painting eye. I attempt to paint them about once a year… that's the time it takes for me to forget how hard it is. So today I bought a bunch of them at Michael's. I am pleasantly surprised with the result. I wiped it off twice. All the different shades of pinks! I only realized my painting was pretty when I was done and the picture was taken. So I hope you enjoy them because you might not see them in my gallery until next year ;)
Here's my reference photo (taken in my closet, in the dark with a flashlight shining through my sunglasses to give it an orange glow) Hey, whatever works!
