My Iris paintings were done from photos. A dear friend of mine named Andrea had these in her backyard. She had her so take the photos and give them to me to paint from. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to give the paintings to her, because she passed away unexpectedly. Whenever I look at them, I ponder the dear friendship I had with her for over ten years.
Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂
