Featured on the Home Pages of Fine Art America Groups! A cluster of old style pink Peonies grew in my front yard garden, and late one hot summer afternoon, the sun hit them just right. I took a photo of them, and painted their picture in my studio, since the sun was wanting to set soon! The essence of the heavy air hovers and dances in the sunlight, giving a dappled look. Many small buds hint at the beautiful array of flowers yet to come. This oil painting was painted in the Chiaroscuro method using a realistic style to capture the essence of the hot summer afternoon sun.
