Big Blue Peony - July 23, 2020
Flowers, Flowers Everywhere!
Hello my flowery friends,
Each spring I look forward to the few weeks in June when my many peony
plants bloom. (I have about 26 so far!) The bushes are covered in huge,
elaborate flowers that fascinate me in all their fleeting beauty. I paint them every
year, and this year I decided to go big. Really big. And blue.
Why, you may ask? Well, because I wasn't in a small or pale pink mood, and
I've always wished peonies came in more colors, like blue or purple or some
crazy speckled combination. With the magic of imagination and a paintbrush,
I can create peonies in any color I like, and this Big Blue Peony painting is the
I've also created a bunch of gorgeous color options for giclée prints. These
lusciously beautiful images of one of Mother Nature's finest creations are
re-imagined in blue, aqua, violet, plum, scarlet, gold, spring green, black &
white, or any other color you like.
Colors can be so evocative, creating moods of calmness or energy. Scroll
through these peony images and see if the flowers lift your spirits and make you
feel happy - and don't we all need some extra happiness right now?

Fill your spaces with color!
Be adventurous. Mix wild colors to enliven your family room, a kid's bedroom,

Art makes you happy. Colors make you happy. Look around the spaces that you
spend your life in and see if they could do with some happy colors or a whole
There, aren't you feeling a little bit lighter, more relaxed, uplifted, and happier?
No matter what's happening, we are all in control of how we feel, and we can
decide to look for things that make us feel happy. The world is still turning,
flowers are blooming, baby birds are cheeping, rivers flow, trees grow, and the
sun shines. Turn off the news and get outside into nature. And when you can't
get outside, bring nature inside with some happy flowers - whether real or
