"Iris meets Marble" 6"x6" oil on gessobord

One minute I'm in the garden smiling in the sun and the next I'm shorter and in a small bottle on a table.   There is this little blue round thing staring at me!    Seems pleasant enough, although it doesn't say much.

As you can see I have started a new series.  My irises have sprung up in the garden and I must use this opportunity to paint them.   Even though I don't usually like painting flowers, these irises are interesting to me.   Maybe it is the way the petals are not uniform.  Love the way the light shows the curves of the flower and the interesting silhouette against the background.
