Manito Iris II

Manito Iris II  8"x 6"   oil
This is another of the stately Iris at Manito Park. The rich color palette there could keep me painting for quite a while. This was mid-day lighting, but I need to go see what late or early day light would be as well. I hope you're all checking out and enjoying the new DPO site. If you haven't seen it yet just click on the slideshow.

  1. My name is Irit so when I see Iris, I feel that this is for me. Thanks!
    Great piece.

  2. Love your loose painterly style Mary. Iris are so much fun to paint, and you have really captured the essence of this variety of Iris.

  3. Lovely, lovely Mary...I saw this on the DPO site, I look forward to more!

  4. One of my favorites of the Iris family...not the most exotic, but so familiar and lovely. Love how the pinky yellow white stands out against the green. beautiful painting.

  5. the color in this is right up my alley ;) Love it.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you!
