Summer love . . . .

My daughter had the mostly beautiful bouquet of peonies delivered to me by courier last week as a little “pick me up” during lockdown. Her dad and I will be shielding until at least the middle of August and it’s getting everyone a bit “down”. The loveliest of summer flowers; these were the most delicate pink candy stripe and there were enough to fill a large vase plus an old enamel jug. They were just crying out to be painted.

  2. I love peonies, and your painting is lovely! Poor you, I know how you must feel, I haven’t seen my one son and family since Christmas. Can’t complain, as the other one has been with us since lockdown, but I do miss them terribly. Strange days…
