Peony is framed in a solid wood 1.5" frame, has a 2.5" white matting and is protected under a sheet of crystal clear UV protected acrylic. Acrylic instead of glass is becoming the preferred way to protect water media. It is extremely lightweight, will not break and does not reflect light as glass does. If interested please ask for a photo of the framed painting.
This painting is professionally framed and is wired and ready to hang. See below.
I love gardening in NH during the warm humid summer months and the peony is one of my favorite flowers. Its blooms are captivating as they sway on their long stems in the gently breezes. This painting was inspired from one of my many peony bushes planted along our garden shed!
