This is a California peony that started blooming yesterday. I painted it this morning with watercolor on hot press paper. Their soft beauty contrasted against green say ‘new.” All things are new and being renewed. “Behold I am doing a new thing, now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? “ Isaiah 43:19 “First Peonies” #7096 Original watercolor (painted en plein air in my garden) on paper 9×12” $40.00 ships flat to you from southern California.
