Reconstructed Peony painting SOLD

“Reconstructed Peony”

18″ x 20″ pastel painting, unframed

I started painting this Peony flower a few years back and never finished it. I’ve been eyeing it for some time and wasn’t sure what direction to today. I started working on it this morning, still not sure where to go, and once I got in the groove it took a life of its own.
I’m happy with the result. Using loose marks and strokes is not my usual method so I was a bit apprehensive to post it. But here it is.
