Tan Iris

"Tan Iris"
oil on panel
6" x 6"
Last week I visited an iris festival for the first time in my life. And I never felt happier. I love flowers. I can spend hours enjoying them at a flower stand. This place was a paradise for my eyes. I've taken about 500 pictures! I probably stopped at every flower in the garden.

I used a photograph for this painting. In order to feel the flower better, I put a real one besides me. Its delicate scent was accompanying me throughout painting. What attracted me was the delicate tan color, as delicate as iris itself.
