floral impresssions........May Flowers- SOLD

May Flowers
Acrylic on canvas

May Flowers sold recently from the RVA website! ... and I would like to say Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!! This painting was inspired from the peonies that bloom each May in our backyard. If you click on the photo you can get a close up look at the impressionistic color.
My favorite way to paint flowers is from having the actual flowers in a still life arrangement, but as this is not always possible I do work a lot from photographs. I cut these flowers and arranged them in a vase to save them from a severe storm that was coming in. They were then painted during a power outage that lasted several days. Thank you for your purchase and I hope that they are very much enjoyed!!!!

Sorry Sheila, yes, I did forget to mention that they are peonies.
