Iris, Peonies, and Poppies

Iris, Peonies, and Poppies
Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas 42"x 96"
Finished, at last! When a friend purchased my painting of a tulip garden hanging in our kitchen, my Mother remarked that would be OK only if I promised to do another floral to hang there.
I began this canvas soon thereafter and it did hang above our kitchen table for many years while she was living. I chose to make it large so she could see the colors. She had lost most of her vision to Macular Degeneration. I chose to use the flowers she had grown through the years because we both loved them so.
After she died in 2004, I started to rework it some, but had not yet completed the rework. I decided now, while the same flowers were in bloom, would be a good time to re-complete it. Today was the day!!!
Below are two detail photos of it.

So will this paining be returned to the kitchen? I have always loved it there for all to see.
