"Irises"

6 x 6"
oil on masonite

sold

This new painting was inspired by reading an article in the NY Times, that Iris Blue is the new, hip color, and........... I got some for Christmas. Surely signs to lead me to paint this timely I is for Irises piece. I had a lot of fun with the Van Gogh-like brush strokes, laying it on thick.

I can't believe what a difference the black background makes, it really makes the painting sing. It is a whole different effect when you see it on e-bay.

The painting is just lovely.
