Bearded Sienna/Wine Iris Watercolor on 140 lb Strathmore CP Paper, 14" x 22" SOLD at $125.00, includes shipping. My friend Jo, from the Barre Post Office, has taken an interest in my work over the past year, noticing paintings as I post them and then processing their shipping out of the PO. She knew how much I adored irises, and had some beauties in her yard, carefully pampered, which she kindly allowed me to raid. So I took some photos for next winter, and cut a few to take home. These gorgeous blooms are so, so much more beautiful than the painting, but I made an attempt to show some of the glorious color. Thanks, Jo! And thank you all for looking.

Single Siberian Irises, One and Two (Two has two leaves) Watercolor on 300 lb CP Arches Paper, 7" x 15" Both SOLD at $25.00 plus $5.00 shipping each. There was a surprising response to the single iris I did the other day, maybe because of the simplicity, or maybe the detail, I'm not sure. But I thought I'd offer another couple of the same thing, while I still have such willing models. Thanks for looking.

Siberian Irises Watercolor on 300 lb CP Paper, 14" x 21" SOLD at $125, includes shipping This one took me two days to finish, since there were so many small areas to paint and allow to dry. But it feels like the flavor of the delicate Siberians that are gracing the yard right now. Click on the image to see larger, and a detail below. Thanks for looking.

Watercolor on 300 lb Paper, 8" x 14"
SOLD at $25.00 plus $5.00 shipping.
My daughter has these all along the side of the pool, and they are just profuse. They must love the New England soil and climate. I have a whole vase of them drawn out, but I knew it would take me way too much time to paint them all, so instead did a single study. Thanks for looking.

Dark Irises One - SOLD
Dark Irises One and Two
Watercolor on 140 lb CP Paper, 14" x 22" each
SOLD at $125.00, includes shipping (each).
I wanted to try the dark colored irises again, so played with it today, and did two versions. It's less frustrating that way, you can keep switching around while waiting for areas to dry. Thanks for looking.
