The first painting of YEAR 3 of being a daily painter - it's exciting to me to begin again. So many subjects, so little time!
I love iris and when I was growing up, we lived right next door to my grandmother. She had them all; dutch iris, bearded, in every color you could imagine. I used to play in the iris beds and the smell was heavenly - one of the most beautiful smells you can imagine. My grandmother was always digging up irises to give to anyone who came to visit.
So, I hope you enjoy the start of a new year of painting - I can't believe it's here already....

Dee - a belated happy holidays and a wish for a wonderful New Year. I have been so busy that my blogging has been put on the back burner. I had to laugh as I caught up on yours - we have some similar goals for ourselves in 2009. Here's a toast to both of us!

Love your iris painting. They are amoung my favorite flowers. I planted some this year and so look forward to thier appearence.
