What speaks the lazy days of summer as much as a casual bouquet of peonies in an old fashioned mason jar?
These pink and white beauties are have such sweet aroma and that lovely pop of color, set against the beautiful blue of a country window and shutter.  I love the sense of calm serenity they give.

Perhaps that speak that kind of serenity to your heart.

Small Gems that Sparkle!


I've been busily experimenting with a somewhat different palette and new methods, and it's been fun! 
I call these small paintings "small gems" because of their brilliant, saturated color that seems to glow and sparkle.
Some of these have found their new home, but some are available.
