THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Often used as the flower given for a 12th anniversary, peonies are rich with symbolism of love. Known as the flower of honor, riches and prosperity, the peonies in this Still-Life with Peonies painting represents a love so full and meaningful that it overflows from within, much like the flowers in the vase do. Their rounded, full blooms and soft nature embody the totality of romance and love, while the white vase that they sit in represents the purity of such an honest love. An omen of a happy marriage, this painting represents a life full of love and fortune.
