Peonies, pink cream floral painting on canvas , floral artwork, original


Peonies, pink cream is a floral painting on gallery wrapped canvas.  An original work of art painted by hand directly in the garden from living flowers.  Because the season is short and lighting moves I was only able to capture three blossoms in various stages of opening and two buds in this painting.  But off of the 8 plants that I had there were hundreds of flowers to choose from.  It was a difficult decision but time and temperature played a big role.  I was able to capture a few other smaller studies which I’ll will put up online for the Christmas season.

One might ask why not just take a photo of the blossom.  Camera’s lie.  The human eye can see a thousand times more nuance of color and lighting than the camera and even though the cameras of today are better they are no match.  Then it just becomes a matter can your skill level, energy and timing match what you see and of course the better you become the closer it is to what you are seeing.  Painting is not the same as photography and the goals are not the same.  It takes a lifetime to learn art and to gain the skill but sometimes the results surpass your expectations.
