I have been absent along time it seems. Summers can be busy with company and reunions and finally I have one week to begin something. I decided on another peony as they are so popular and sell well. I have to leave again the 28th for 2 weeks so have to leave my husband in charge of hummingbird feeders and dogs. I wish I could take this painting with me and complete it but I have learned not to travel with my work as something always happens to it...even a small scratch could alter the background from being even so I do not take the chance. Hopefully I will be able to get this center area near done so there is not so much to do when I get home again!!
Also I put into print the yellow rose, Once In A Blue Moon. It turned out so nice so I am well pleased with the giclees.
