Peonies in Double Happiness Jar with Two Wrens
30x24 inches / oil on canvas
...and here's the second painting to which I'd referred in the prior post, a loose arrangement of old fashioned peonies in a Double Happiness jar symbolizing good luck. Tucked amidst the casual arrangement of antique leather books and pretty pink stationery, are two tiny little Wrens, one of which is holding a fly in it's beak. As always, the porcelain is chipped and cracked, water droplets randomly scattered, dense blossoms display a heavy burden on their stems with fallen petals, and leather books are torn and frayed...all revealing my trademark signs of age.
Blessed are those who see beautiful things in humble places where others see nothing.
