King of Flowers

- Peony

- Lushan Honeysuckle

Since Tang dynasty, Peonies have been known as the King of Flowers for their abundance and lush beauty. They symbolize riches and honor.


An original mixed media painting on pink handmade paper (bought from Sustainable Papercraft Studio), with alcohol inks, gouache, embroidery threads and beads . The size of the painting is approximately 8" x 10" and is mounted in a pinewood float frame. The overall size of the frame is approximately 9"x 11". It comes varnished with 2 coats of Krylon Kamar spray varnish to ensure protection from sunlight over time. 


The frame is handmade in my home studio from pinewood and has a double coat of espresso water based varnish. It comes in two parts that are attached with screws on the back. If ever need be, the painting can be detached from the outer frame by removing the said screws. 

Artist's signature with the date on the side and back of the frame.
