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.
