The art festival I participated in over last weekend was near the shore which is a few hours south of where I live. So, it's a bit warmer there and flowers bloom earlier. The show was in a beautiful park full of flower gardens. And that is where I saw the irises. Beds full of them in spectacular bloom. I made sure to bring my camera the second day. The irises here where I am are still a couple of weeks away.
In this painting, I've combined three of the various colors of iris. Anytime I do a painting with one white iris among other colors, I think of vanGogh's iris painting. I'm sure you've seen it. One white iris in a bed of purple irises. It's one of my favorites!
