Today I was inspired by my beautiful daughter and I wanted to let her know how much I appreciate her by making her a painting. Her favorite flowers are the delicate peonies, I  must admit I have never painted peonies for what I knew this was going to be a challenge. I thought about it for a while and I finally decided to approach it as an abstract painting which allowed me to be more loose and free without having to worry so much about the details and instead focus on capturing the essence of the flower. My daughter ended up loving it and that is all I can ask for.
