"Pears, Peonies and Pentimento", 12x16, oil, peonies, pink, pentimento, MAryanne Jacobsen art
It's rare that I can resist fresh peonies when I find them available in the supermarket. Especially in the winter when things can get a little dreary, even in Florida.
So I picked these up and painted them with some fresh pears that I had on hand. I played a little with the color in spots which was fun.
This painting was done on top of another painting that I decided was not one of my best efforts, so there's some really cool pentimento throughout. If you are not sure what pentimento is, you can read about it here.
