Peonies have always been my favorite flower. Growing up in Kansas, my mom had lots of peony bushes that she transplanted from her home in Iowa. And, when Bill and I lived in Kansas City, I had a lot of peony bushes there. I usually grew the double kind, so I'm not sure how the singles smell! Oh, how I miss the smell of peonies! I painted this beautiful flower from a photo on Wet Canvas.
And, here is my 2nd try at the Virtual Paintout for Mexico City. I like it a little better than my first one, but I'm considering trying for a 3rd!
In case I don't post again before Christmas, I hope all of you have a Merry and Safe Christmas Holiday!
