From the time I was a very, very small child, each time I saw peonies, I thought of my "Busia" .. my mothers mother.  What a gentle soul she was and how I loved her.  Anyway, I had never painted a peony and decided that it was time to paint that bright, pink peony that Busia loved so much.  I first painted the peony with the green leaves (and had a dickens of a time getting this one finished!) ..
and then I did a painting that featured only the flower .. wide open and on a black background.  Spent a lot of time thinking about days with Busia while painting these flowers!
