Bearded Iris

Acrylic 24 x 36 on Canvas


It is wonderful to have a spouse who encourages your work and loves getting paintings for herself. This was a holiday gift for her. She wanted a floral which is not typically my choice of subject. I wanted to do a larger scale painting and take a break from tiny 5/0 brushes and pick up one of those 3/4" ones in my brush caddy. I also wanted to paint an image with a high degree of resonance and color. We found the Red and White Iris and thought it perfect for the artist stretching exercise.

The Iris takes it name from the Greek name for "rainbow". Surely they come in just about every color of the rainbow. The Iris is a perennial plant that propagates by rhizomes and or bulbs.
