"Dressed for Company"

I don't paint on full sheets (22"x30") very often, but when I do I feel a real sense of accomplishment...it's alot of space to cover! But I approached this painting in sections...almost like a puzzle and piecing together the blossoms and the greens, like Pacman gobbling up white paper and filling it with pigment!

LOVE IT! I want to touch the irises. Would love to see it live and in person!

Absolutely beautiful... I've just finished my irises too. :) What a coincidence!

Happy summer!

Annelein, I just seem to run out of superlatives for your beautiful pieces. Each one is always stupendous.

Hi Annelein, I am visiting here for the first time , what an exotic collection of florals you have, each is aptly titled and wonderfully done!Loved them all.

Iris flower is my favorite (maybe because my dad loves them, maybe because of my name).. Your iris garden is amazing. I see the gentle sun light through the clouds that slightly penetrates thin iris leaves.
Thank you Annelein!
