Beauty abounds as the viewer is embraced by soft, blush pink and white peony petals. A tiny bud, in the heart of the painting, fulfils life's promise of renewal. By anchoring the blooms in a vase of inky, navy blue - a colour associated with masculinity - the visual and visceral harmony of the painting is wedded and united.
