Peaches and Peonies, a Celebration of Spring Flowers and Sunlight, and a Certain Calico Cat

My old-fashioned pink peonies are fervently blooming this year, since we’ve lost a tree and they finally have enough light to really show off. Those aren’t the peonies in this painting, but any time I see peonies I think of Peaches and the moment I saw her bathing on the table in that sweet spring […]
