Eating Happiness, Detail


" Happiness hit her like a train on a track"....

This was started when the peony bloomed for the first time in a completely unexpected over-the-top, magnificent, stunning way. The song that was running through my mind and the peony came together in this painting.

But the the blocked-in sketch of a painting just stood there in the corner, not knowing if it would just be painted over or live. And then, the Daily Paintworks Challenge said paint the music...and it had to be finished, it had to be done.     

strange lyrics, strange song, strange painting. Why not? Aloha!
