Peonies are flowers that don't grow in the desert, and as a result, I have not had any exposure to them. But this year while in France, I was enthralled to see them growing in gardens throughout the Southwestern region of the country. And what a glorious image they present. Soft and delicate like a ballerina, they danced in the gentle breezes. They're on my list to paint. But like most artists, too many subjects, not enough time. I'll let you know as soon as I finish one.
