Lusty Month of May

"Lusty Month of May"
12" x 12"
Oil on wrapped canvas
I visited a friend yesterday who had just purchased many pots of peonies that looked like this—glorious for the lusty month of May!  I went there to photograph the migrating orioles and came home with shots of peonies instead. The orioles were in the canopy of her magnificent trees, sheltered from the rain.

The coloring and interior structure of this lovely lady intrigued me.  I began painting her using a sponge, but felt more comfortable within the small spaces using my Rosemary & Co. brushes.  She's painted on all five sides of the wrapped canvas, as are all my wrapped canvases.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my art today.

  1. Carol, this painting is lovely, and of course it brings to mind immediately the wonderful lyrics Jay Lerner wrote for the song of the same name in "Camelot." Indeed, spring is busting out all over!
