  1. Thank you for sharing the process and for your thoughts about the subject matter, June. It is a lovely work.

  2. June, this painting surpasses the fact that it is a painting. You have captured a memory by your soft, lost edges on the outside edges and the inner edges of the peonies. There is a definite feeling of nostalgia. Whew! What a keeper!! You should have giclees made of this one!!!

  3. It’s really a beautiful, delicate piece. Thanks for sharing the entire process here. I’ve always learned a lot reading your progress posts. You are a great teacher, June! How long have you been teaching watercolor?
