I love the intense focus on one thing, with the flower cut off by the edges of the painting. It looks very real yet also modern, ambiguous in meaning and bold compositionally.

Alain, n'as-tu pas de commentaire?

Incroyablement belle, cette peinture!

One of my favorite flowers and a difficult one to paint.
Well done!

Hi Jol
Je viens juste de d�couvrir le tableau ce lundi matin � 8 heures 25!
I am just taking my breakfast and I cannot write...with my mouth full and a cloudy mind. Best regards.

A sweet flower like a delicacy.
A bewitching strawberry meringue...

A sweet flower
Like a waterlily
Foodlighted by the moon alone
Hanging on the black water
Of Monet's pond at Giverny
She is waiting for him
But she didn't know
He'll never come back.

In the heart of this sweet flower
A little man sat on a hill
His black snake behind him
Is praying
In front of the rising sun
This sun metamorphosing into
A palatial flower
Like a marvellous big-bang of Love.

I so love peonies... This one's absolutely beautiful!

You did such a great job!
