Peonies and the Rain

My garden is full of enormous peony blooms.  Red, white, pink, all have a presence. Unfortunately, the rain keeps knocking them over.  I've placed wire cages around them hoping they will stay upright, but the blooms are so heavy that even a little bit of rain and they are flat on the ground.  The salvaging process requires that I cut them, put them in vases, and bring them inside.  Then I force them to sit for me while I paint their portraits.  This little portrait is 5x7 inches and is offered for sale at my Etsy Shop. Click here to view it or make a purchase.  Follow this link to see some of my other small floral paintings
