For the love of Irises

Saturday's Irises
Watercolour on watercolour paper
5 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches

This little watercolour is from the file of former
work.  For a few years I considered myself to
be a flower painter.  I still love painting flowers,
but it hasn't been my main focus in the recent
past.  Landscape, portraits and still life have
been more my thing.

But this painting is from a time when I was
studying famous flower painters, who were
like scientists in paint.  I love the detail, and
would rarely paint like this today.  Now I'm
trying to get looser.

But I'll admit it, uncovering this today, when
I can't show you something new, was like
getting a gift from the universe.  Another
one, because this whole, hot, beautiful day
was a gift from the universe.

Have a loving your work day.
