This image is of a tree peony flower done in fluid acrylic on canvas. It was in the Kennedy Heights Arts Center Guild Show which came down last weekend. It sold! Yippee!

I have done a couple other peony paintings and will probably do more - I just think the flowers are so beautiful. But it seems like when they bloom we always get some severe rain and thunder storms - my imagination, or is it that they happen to bloom at the same time of year that we are prone to get bad weather?

My grandmother always told me that when the hydrangeas (she called them "snowball bushes")bloom we will have cool weather and she called it "Snowball Winter". Again, seems to me that she was right - we do seem to get cool weather then. Some time ago I attempted to paint some hydrangea blooms and failed! I'd like to try that again.
