Painting, Oil on Canvas

Fine Art America


Painted on an oval canvas, this bouquet of voluminous peonies has qualities of the specialized botanical painters of the 15th and 16th centuries. Imitating the great masters even in its oval shape, the highly decorative imagery, with its burst of colors, makes it a perfect piece to hang on any wall. The composition is beautifully balanced into a solid line of flowers with powerful colors exploding like fireworks over a lake. The purple backdrop adds to this exploding image bringing the flowers forward while reflecting their light as if they were over some water
entity. Every bloom is given special care, and all are painted empirically. The orange peonies are delicately brushed on the canvas. Their petals are so precious one could almost imagine looking at butterfly wings. The
coral bloom is so softly painted that it nearly gets lost between the predominant baby pink peonies. These are well-defined with sharp contours for an almost scientific look. The green leaves add to the contrast rendering with flair the effortless beauty of nature. The calming charm of the subject and the soft yet powerful light emanating from it will no doubt conquer any collector’s heart.
