Backyard Iris

Backyard Iris  11"x 15"  oil
This is a plein aire painting from our back yard. It was done last season and I wanted to post it again to continue my current  theme. I am working on a larger iris painting that I will post soon though. We are still a few weeks away from seeing these bloom, but I hope to get out there and paint them again (maybe after the yard work gets done-ha!)

You have really inspired me with your Iris paintings.
The Iris are blooming here and I tried one painting but I think I will try some more.
I love the soft background in this one and the flowers are gorgeous.

I appreciate it, I tried to gray some of the background color in order to help the flowers pop.

Your irises are beautiful. Is yard-work ever done? :)

Beautiful! Not only the Irises but the background too.
Great work Mary!

These irises are gorgeous, Mary... Just loose enough to be wonderful and light and mysterious... I also like the way they fit into the backgrounds you've created...
