You must be VERY happy with the results of this. The petals have the right paper-thinness and softness of peonies - I can feel them - and the color is wonderful, and I can almost smell their scent (except, of course, the white ones smell better). The pouring you did gives the whole painting a glow. I especially like the almost hidden blossom at the bottom. Wow. I think I'll give up painting flowers now.
