Peonies In A Ball Jar

Peonies In A Jar 11 in. x 14 in. Oil on Canvas

The subject is three of my wife's Peonies. The jar is an old Ball Jar with the blue tint. It is actually one of the two jars that I use for water for my watercolors.

I've mentioned before in my painting descriptions that I typically paint still life chiaroscuro with the subject emerging from darkness but this year I've been somewhat enamored with painting a lot of things in full light. I really like the stark gray-white background with the detailed subject. I hope you like it.
