Inspiring, Chinese painting

Ink on paper, Qing dynasty, attributed to Tang Yin
The peonies are getting ready to bloom! Mr Cranky bought sixty different varieties one year because all the catalog descriptions were so compelling that he found it impossible to eliminate any. (That reminds me of one of my favorite childhood books, Millions of Cats by Wanda Gag.) A few of them have died out, but we do have a pretty wonderful month of May with fresh, fragrant peonies in vases all over the house.
I wish I could handle a brush like Tang Yin could.
