Turquoise and Peonies Squared!
Turquoise and Peonies Squared.
6x6in oil on canvas panel $100.
I really love this color combination. Red is my favorite color
but turquoise has to be next.
A fellow artist challenged me to see if I could
fit my turquoise vase into a square format.
I had to make it a bit shorter with no foreground
and take one of the flowers up to the top.
The square is very popular with artists
because it is perfect for the contemporary still life.
