Mom's Peonies by Alice McMahon

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Pastel on Kitty Wallis sanded paper. 24 × 18″ A bouquet for Mother’s Day, painted in my Mom’s crystal pitcher.

I specialize in figurative charcoal drawing. My work was recently shown and sold at the Saatchi Gallery in London. Current works delve into the realm of symbolism and magic realism.
All of my drawings are meant to be noble representations of individual subjects, and also bring together a wealth of influences, recognition of art history and myth and a contemporary attitude to create images that are of the moment, but hopefully will also remain relevant in the future.

    Flowers are not one of my subjects, but I’ve got to give you praise for your outstanding piece Alice. So well painted.

  • I only painted the flowers because Mom wanted them. :) Turned out not too bad. Thanks for the compliments everyone!

    beautifully done as always, I especially love the white flowers in the composition

  • Thanks mariart! This one was a challenge as I painted it from a set-up in my studio, and the peonies opened and faded fast!!! The scent was fantastic though!

    Wonderful interpretation of the crystal vase Alice! Congratulations on a well deserved feature!

  • Thanks Lynda, I’m not one to paint flowers much, but it was a special request from my mom, and the flowers and vase have special meaning to me. The peonies are from the bush my late dad gave me, the vase belonged to my great grandmother. Mom loves the result. xx
