With my five year old at school during the afternoons, and my 1-year-old’s nap schedule inconveniently NOT overlapping with that, I find that my painting time is shorter than ever. 😳 So today I had Everett sit on my lap while I painted him using a mirror (he watched me paint, I watched him).

Peony Painting Frenzy
Each summer for the entire month of June, I drop everything to create paintings of my favorite flower, the peony.  I'm not sure how it became such an obsession of mine. I suppose it started when I chose them for my wedding. But over the years they have become more than just a memory from that big day.
