Linda, Thank you. I was a little hesitant about creating my own challenge, but am finding it "challenging" and fun!

Thank you Kelley. I think it's the Permanent Rose that I mixed in and know you love!

Linda, Thanks. Sometimes the plein air pieces have to be done so quickly, that the brushstrokes just happen!

Thank you Claire, I love Iris season!

Sylviane and Sherry, Thank you both so much!

Vic, The iris is one of my favorites, too!

Thank you Nancy. Iris heaven...you're right,, that's exactly what it is!

Becky, Thanks so much. I love flowers. They're little, 3-d pieces of art.

Thank you Celeste, It was a little challenging getting all the color values in the wrinkles!

Liz, thanks so much!

Thank you Dean, The strokes have to be quick when you're running out of time!
