I've been working on this one for a few days. I hope to get it close enough, or done and take it off of the easel tomorrow. I have sketched out another peony for next week too. Seems to be my focus lately, trees and peonies. If ever there was a long winter in Maine, this is it. So I offer this painting and all it's warm weather optimism for all of you fellow New Englanders. Spring-like weather is coming!!
*2 more inches of snow forcasted for tonight, ugh. It is March 27th, right?
In other news, my studio is really trashed. All I do is paint, so some reluctant cleaning is in order today.
Another big project. 24"x48". It will take a few days. We are going to get another foot of snow here tomorrow, so this will be the perfect subject to keep my mind on. Really, I think I'm the worst Mainer. I'm always cold and I hate snow. I'm sure I wouldn't appreciate these flowers as much if I didn't spend more than half my year waiting to see them bloom again though. It's all good. I do think Maine is absolutely beautiful... especially in the summer. :)
