"Peony - Demo at San Antonio 3" --- Sold

I have not painted peony until this one. I confronted my challenge in front of a group of enthusiastic artists. These flowers were overwhelmingly complicated. I wasn't very confident I could do it. The result wasn't bad. I kept reminding myself: I am not painting flowers. I am painting shapes and forms, lights and shadows.

Now I have enough galleries willing to show my work. While I was feel happy, I feel more worried. I have promised too much more than I can possibly deliver. Oh! boy, what should I do now? Like an Ostrich, I bury my head in the sand.

I saw the thumbnail of your peony painting and it took my breath away ...you painted the spirit of the flower! I was very surprised to go on to read your trepidation and lack of confidence! It appears to be painted with great bravery.Trust yourself !
