Description: Introducing our latest addition to our online gallery, the "Red Peony in Setting Sun" painting by Henry Li. This captivating piece features a stunning contrast between the red peonies and the setting sun, with a single bloom standing out in divine glory.

Inspired by Du Fu's poem, "浮雲遊子意,落日故人情", the painting captures the essence of transience and impermanence. The red petals in the painting move gently, like passing clouds, while the setting sun lingers, as if reminiscing about an old friend gone. This painting serves as a reminder to cherish the present moment and appreciate the beauty of impermanence.

The peony is commonly known as the symbol of wealth,  “富貴花”, but as Du Fu wrote in another poem, "丹青不知老将至,富贵于我如浮云" ("My brushwork knows no age, but my wealth and fame are like passing clouds to me"). In this painting, the red peony petals take on the metaphorical meaning of "浮雲", symbolizing the fleeting nature of wealth and prosperity.

Bring home this elegant and meaningful artwork and add a touch of serenity to your space. The painting is mounted and ready to be framed, making it a convenient and hassle-free addition to your art collection. Order your "Red Peony in Setting Sun" painting today from Blue Heron Arts.
