Peonies in December

Peonies in December
6x6 oil on panel $150
I could not believe my luck.  I found these Peonies at Fresh Market in Bedford NH. Peonies in December!
I started this by toning the panel with rose, yellow and cerulean and I liked the way the flowers looked on such a delicate background. But... I thought they would be more dramatic on a darker background, when that didn't work I wiped the background and created a cool mid-tone gray.
I'm still not sure so I will do two more, light background and also dark background so I can compare. I hope the peonies last long enough.  Fresh Market is over an hour away!
