Two Peonies - Oil Painting

I'm practicing flowers using the Gary Jenkins method.  Also, I'm still experimenting with water mixable oil paints, a medium so versatile that its confusing which choice to make.  My goal is to paint a flower a day until I feel more comfortable with both subject and medium.

Here is today's flower painting.

A common response to my florals is that they are very antique looking - rather old fashioned.  Sigh.  What is wrong with that?  I'm an old fashioned girl.
