A fine art painting showing a peony bouquet basking in the glow of the moonlight. There is a slight sentiment of melancholy that can be sensed coming from the painting. One can almost feel the peonies reaching for the last rays of light before the darkness of the late evening falls over them.
This painting is an experiment in mixed media on both silk and canvas. The white flowers in the foreground were created with Chinese ink and pigments on silk. Then, the silk was mounted onto canvas previously painted black. Finally, fragments of silk were burnt to make the canvas visible. The remaining flower elements were developed in oil to form depth. It was one of a series of three in this experiment.
