A Single Peony – 6" x 6" (15.25 x 15.25 cm) – Oil Canvas Panel

Whole Foods is probably the best source for interesting flowers in the region. Mondays after attending my Awareness Through Movement class I sometimes drop by a Whole Foods to see what flowers are in to paint. Last night it was peonies, I love these flowers and when we get a house with a yard, I am going to plant them, until then I rely on Whole Foods. As a side note, I have always mispronounced this word, saying “pee-o-nee” instead of “pee-un-nee” the correct way, now I have learned the correct way and am working on changing a very old habit. I wonder if the pronunciation is a regional thing.

After painting this single flower, I started a painting of a bunch of them, I will post it once it is complete. Have a good evening, Liz
