Peony Procrastination

Yes, I am still avoiding the chocolates!  I just need to be  in the right mood for that kind of painting, and I'm not at the moment.

Todays distraction is a small peony, painted without any initial sketch on a scrap of Fabriano Artistico extra white paper.  I quite like the looseness I've achieved!

Dear Ruth,
Me, too, love this work. Regarding the chocky, take it easy. We, artists know 'pushing makes junk work.' Please be kind to yourself.
Cheers, Sadami
