These peonies grew outside my home in Cape Town and I so miss those wintery, rainy mornings when I used to pick a few branches from the tree outside my front door to decorate the entrance hall. This painting celebrates my special memories. The somber greens of the background set the pinks off vibrantly and I just love the way it turned out.
My latest painting in a series of truly French inspired works. I mainly want to depict the touch of sunlight on fresh fruit which reminds of a lazy morning in the South of France! Hence the grain sack dish cloth! I did, however, get this fabulous vase from my brother Frans when I visited South Africa in June, and absolutely L O V E it!
