Lilac and Peony Buds

Here is lilac from our big yard in Chardon, Ohio, along with the always enticing peony. Set them in a crystal pitcher and you have an irresistible still life to paint. I did try to give this movement and life, however. The varnish is catching too much light in this image; in reality, the painting has greater clarity and depth. Click on the painting and it will take you to more views of its parts.

slightly less than 9×12″ oil paint on canvas panel; click on the painting to see enlarged views of it.
