Painting Peonies makes for a Starving Artist by Pamela Blaies

oil on canvas
24" x 20"

When I set up this still life, I noticed the petals had opened up beautifully, so I began to focus on the peonies first. I'm so glad I did, because after a few hours, they began to open rapidly. By the end of the evening, the blossoms were twice the size they were when I started.  I didn't dare take a break until the flowers where finished - not even to eat.  I guess you could call me a "Starving Artist!"
