Iris

First Iris of the Season
Watercolor, ink

It's happening! Everything is starting to bloom and leaf out like apple and pear blossoms, veggies like tomatoes, squash and potatoes and of course daffodils and iris and weeds. Oh ya, and nasturtiums everywhere. I made my salad with the flowers from my nasturtiums today and the lovely fresh radish taste just was delightful. OK everyone out there where winter is still at your door step…..spring is coming.

Hello spring! :O)

How wonderful! This is lovely--the dark purples are luscious; and I love the wavery lines and washes--they really convey the paperiness of the iris (to me, a very hard flower to paint).
