Daily Painting, "Peony Buds"

"Peony Buds"
Oil on Gessoed Masonite Panel

In my previous post I was waxing rhapsodic about my peonies and saying how much I love them like babies.....when, as I finished this painting this morning, it dawned on me how symbolic it is that I picked this composition for Mother's Day! I have two children, both of whom I adore and cherish tons!! One older. One younger. As I finished this today, my eyes saw two burgeoning buds...just like my own children. So Happy Mother's Day today to all of you...and Happy Mother's Day to me!! Nurture nature!! It's a good thing!!
