In Spring of 2007 I was attending Tree Peony Week at the Linda Hall Library just a mile from my house. These enormous flowers are as large as dinner plates. I have heard that the Japanese put umbrellas above the blooms for the flowers capture too much rain, which causes them to breakdown quickly. I took several photos, and then I decided to make a pastel drawing of this white one. Scott, the groundskeeper, has now identified this particular variety as Yasonomine.

The more I looked at my photo the more colors I saw. White is not just white, but pale yellow and blue, and on and on and on. This drawing took 10 hrs. to do, but then again, I am not a fast artist.
