This white peony surpised me with a bloom within a month or so of planting it in a pot to get an early jump on the spring.  I didn't even think they would bloom the first year you plant them.  How awesome!

It's a frilly little guy.... I'm not that happy with the center.  This is the first study I painted in my new
handmade watercolor journal from Pfeiffer Art Supply.  It has cold press paper which didn't bother me on this study.  But I've tried two other paintings and I feel the paper isn't working for me personally.    So, I'm switching to my Stillman and Birn Zeta mixed media journal for the next work.  That paper agrees with my style more than any other.  I actually already ordered an entire huge sheet of that paper but it doesn't feel the same.  It's smoother than the paper in the actual journal... we'll see how it goes.
