Hi everyone, hope all is well. I just wanted to share one of my most recent paintings.. my first after finishing college! Ah! I submitted it to my university's alumni show, so we'll see how it goes.

Peonies
2013
36" x 48"
acrylic


& two detail shots. I've actually never painted flowers before, so I was a little hesitant, but I like how these came out.




Thanks for looking!

Thank you :]

Thanks! They've really just never "come up" in anything I've painted, which I guess is kind of strange. I like them though! Although I don't know if I'll pick peonies for any upcoming paintings too soon... haha they're tough.
