Perfect Peony


My favorite from yesterday’s quick photo shoot. My friend and neighbor, Judy, grew this beautiful peony!

Metal clay jewelry, nature photography, and digital scrapbooking are Karen's passions. She is mostly self-taught, enjoying the learning process as much as producing her works of art. Karen's jewelry features fine silver, copper, and bronze. She sculpts and refines metal clay, then kiln fires her pieces and polishes them to perfection. The process allows for exciting interpretations of symbols, shapes, textures, and combinations of metals. A long time user of Photoshop, Karen loves to create digital layouts with her photos. Her layouts and albums are a diary of sorts; documenting milestones, recording happy times, and celebrating her love of nature.

  1. Gorgeous! I can almost smell it from here! 🙂

  2. Wow, a beautiful flower and photo! Your neighbour must be pleased with this, too. Our peonies are ‘thinking’ about coming out soon, I think.

    • Thank you, Cait! She does love this photo. It was a spur of the moment shoot. We placed the vase on a small table in the driveway, then held black foam board for the background. My neighbor is moving in a few weeks and has decided to give me the peony plant!
