The Divine Sarah
12" x 12" oil on canvas
Life begets life. Energy creates energy. It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich.
Nothing shouts summer more than a big, blowsy pink peony. They are beautiful, but a terrible design, being so top heavy. Just at their peak, a wind or rain storm comes along and leaves them tattered on the ground.
This pale pink variety grows in my garden and is named after Sarah Bernhardt the famous actress of the late 1800s, early 1900s. Sarah was known as "The Divine Sarah" and once called the most famous actress of all time. Known for her melodramatic acting and wild lifestyle, she was memorable. I think she would approve of this painting.
Now a little treat, a clip of The Divine Sarah in action.
