30x40 oil on wrap around gallery canvas

    This painting was the beginning of a shift in my palette - moving from cooler tones to warmer color choices.  Peonies, to me are always a fine balance of soft and feminine and yet strong and powerful, demanding the attention of the whole garden.  Because of this I chose to present these peonies in a large scale and set against a darker background.  

Warm Up

  •    Larger works of art like this are taken off the stretcher bars and rolled up to be shipped in a tube.  This better protects the painting from damage while shipping and also provides the collector a more cost effective  shipping method. 


    When your artwork arrives, simply take it to a framing shop to have it mounted, once again, to the wooden stretcher bars.  This is a simple procedure that any reputable framer will be able to perform.
