This is the other popping peony piece created at this year's workshop, buds ready to open, blossoms exploding like fireworks. I missed posting yesterday because I was delivering paintings to Manchester. The Southern Vermont Arts Center is hosting a show titled "Stamens and Stems: Nature's Tryst". It is a themed show of floral interpretations. I was invited to participate and the show opens next Saturday June 23, 2-4 p.m.
