White Peony

Friday night we had a party to celebrate the good people running for local office. I picked peonies for my kitchen. Yesterday I painted one set in a milk bottle.

Bonus: my studio smells fantastic. It's a Duchesse de Nemours peony.

Last year I had the great good fortune to visit Bologna, Italy with my daughter and was delighted to find the Morandi Museum there. I've always been a fan. I bought a set of postcards and they're pinned to a large bulletin board in my studio. Lined up like that I finally noticed that sometimes his table is beige and his wall gray, in other paintings the wall beige and the table gray.

White Peony. Oil on Canvas. 8 x 10.
