Oriental Butterflies

Oriental Butterflies
Oil on stretched canvas  20" x 10"
$395.00 + $10. s/h

This is the third of my violet iris series.  It's the fifth iris painting of this summer.  I love painting iris. They're a soft, gentle flower.  I love being out doors and how great is it to just paint in my own back yard!  These three violet iris paintings have all been of the tall, bearded iris from IRIS4U Gardens in Denver.

Below are some of the iris at IRIS4U.  My husband and I have gone there to buy iris.  My
 plein air group, Garden Artists, has gone there several times to paint!
