"Swan" Iris

"Swan" Iris
The colors of these flowers are beautiful.
They grew in the back yard, shaded by a tree, and bloomed infrequently.
I wanted to get rid of them because they had brown and yellow flowers  (not pretty).
 Bill moved them to the side yard last Fall, where they get sunshine
and they are no longer the Ugly Ducklings of the garden.  They have
completely changed color.  I think I'll be painting more of these!

  1. Your "Swan" Iris are very pretty, Fay. Nice job!

  2. I really like the mood of this painting. The vase, shadow, table and wall are loose and almost smokey. I like the purple background too. Nice painting.
