Glorious Pink Peony

My dear friend gave me a marvelous present for helping do some arranging in her home....a glorious pink peony from her garden. No running around before painting class last week, since I knew that it would be the most beautiful subject. Here's my watercolor painting  for Painting Party Friday. I will also post it to Pink Saturday.  The flower was wonderfully large and such a glorious pink, I took way too many photos but just had to share one with you. There's a picture of my kitchen table where I blog everyday with the pretty peony to look at.
Till next time enjoy nature's beauty.
Always, gerri

    Oh My Word!!! You captured the beauty of the flower to perfection.
    Well I joined Paint Party Friday for the first time today - my nerves are still jangling as this was a huge step for me to show this side of myself.
    I might see you over at Pink Saturday if I can find a pink piece of artwork!!!

  10. What a sweet gift, and then a wonderful painting! I love that it's a larger size as well. How lovely to sit in your beautiful room and blog--I think the window scape would be such a distraction for me. But I just love the setting you have there--also got me wondering what's in your teacup. ha ha =)
