Peonies Watercolor Painting

Peonies in a Teacup
A watercolor painting of some garden Peonies
in a teacup.  I prefer casual flower arrangements, like
a clump of flowers freshly picked from the garden,
plopped in a teacup or an old glass jar,
the way your grandma used to do it.  Makes me
much happier than a fancy formal arrangement.  This
painting was painted on Fabriano CP watercolor
paper using a variety of watercolor brands:
Winsor & Newton, Sennellier, Schmincke, etc.
Garden flowers are food for the soul, made of peace
and serenity.  They say to me:  "Take care of yourself, old woman."
