Flower Painting, Iris Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" on Canvas Panel
I spent most of the spring in the mountains of North Carolina, surrounded by flowers everywhere. They must have the perfect environment for flowers, and I loved every minute of it. This is one of the beautiful iris' I photographed during my stay.
I had a difficult time getting this painting to the finishing point, but turns out, my real struggle was in trying to get a decent photograph of it. I find that blues and greens tend me merge when photographed, especially blues. I took many photos of this painting, under different conditions, but I believe many of the subtle color changes were lost. Note to self: Don't do blue and green paintings, and don't do very dark paintings.....also impossible (for me) to photograph well.
