Lilacs and Peonies (Posterized)

This morning I received this bouquet of lilacs and peonies, an early Mother's Day delivery.  Of course I took pictures.  Tonight I opened one of the photos in Painter and used digital pastel to simplify the background.  Then I posterized the image, working in sections. Lilacs remind me of my mom and the lilacs growing in the yard in Pueblo. Peonies remind me of our house in Lawrence, Kansas.  The flowers are lovely, and I love to get them. But my favorite part of being a mom is being a mom.
