The Irises are Blooming!

Iris Study/oil on board/ 4" x 4"/SOLD
Irises are one of my favorite spring garden flowers. I have painted many in watercolor contrasting the transparent upper petals with the "velvet" rich falls. This is my first oil painting of an iris and again I enjoyed the contrast of the two parts of the flower. I would love to try one "fractured" in Julie Ford Oliver's style.
