The Studio Garden

Today is our Fourth Anniversary at Mill Pond Cottage and the Studio Garden is improving each year.
Absent from the garden photo is my early blooming red peony. I cut the blooms this morning because this one shatters in just a few days and it is 83 degrees today. I hope I can get a start on painting it before Auntie Pauline's peonies bloom - that is the white one you have seen in my previous paintings.

I have painted this red one several times over the years. Most memorable is a 15 x 11 inch colored pencil drawing in 1998  called "Turning Point" that was purchased by the University of Washington. Wow! that was 20 years ago. I've had this peony plant a long time.

Auntie Laura's Red Magic Peony - my next painting.
