"Peonies make me think of you,
how they open, and open, unfolding
petal after petal, so lush, so brazen;"
EXTRACT FROM "What I'll Never Tell You" - Sharon Brogan - WATERMARK - a poet's notebook

After not having done flowers for quite some time, I've discovered the pleasure of one of nature's beauties again. Like trees, no two flowers are ever the same and can provide hours of pleasure in the study thereof. Summer always provides one with plenty of flowers for inspiration.


  1. Not sure if you have read my blog lately. I have been thinking of producing inspirational cards from art and photographs and here you are doing just that with this lovely paintings and words.

  2. No, I haven't been lately Ralph, but have you ever considered joining RedBubble to produce your cards? You can have a look here - http://www.redbubble.com/people/MareeClarkson - I've bought many of my own cards and framed prints, posters and postcards, and that of other artists, and it's a great way of selling prints of your art. Thanks for the lovely comment!

  3. I always like the shading in a white flower. Your peonies are lovely.

  4. So do I Vickie, the shading in white anything! Thank you so much!
