Rich Peonies - acrylic still life painting

Rich Peonies
12"x12" (30.48 cm x 30.48 cm)
Acrylic on canvas

Something about this peonies gives me a rich and wealthy feeling. Not sure where I get if from: the abundance of petals, the background color, or the shiny vase. The fact is, I enjoyed painting them very much.
Oh, I can't forget to mention that I got the photo from an old painting challenge by Evhe, at A nos pinceaux.

Thanks for stopping by and reading. Ciao :)

    1. Hi Evhe,
      I wanted to paint the peonies since the challenge came out, but never got the chance to do it until now. Thanks for a beautiful composition and your kind words. :)

    1. Hello Renate, thanks for the compliments! :)
      I would have submitted to the challenge, but it's an old one, for the first two weeks of January. I didn't have time to paint it then, but I liked the photo so much, so I decided to give it a go anyway. :)
