"What did you say?" 6"x6" oil on gessoboard


Iris had to lean over to hear what Marble was saying.   He was asking her if she liked being out of the garden.  She supposed it was alright but couldn't really concentrate on what he was saying because she was transfixed on the sparkle in his eye.

Painting these irises is sort of like abstract painting because there are so many contours catching the light that the object that your painting is not a thing but a  grouping of color values.
