Plain Peony

"Plain Peony"
6" x 6"
Oil on hardboard
Someone had picked her close to the bloom like a dandelion in a child's bouquet, then dropped her on the ground near my house. I brought her inside, trimmed her stem and set her in a crystal bowl of water. She opened in the heat of this beautiful May day to expose a very simple center, compared to Friday's ruffled one.  

I cropped this peony to make an almost abstracted view of her center.  I liked the many colors of red that the halogen light shone on the petals.

Thank you for being here today.
