Iris Blooms by Sharon Hodges
With this month's theme of flowers, I am struggling to contribute. Flowers generally bring me to my knees. They are, for me, challenging subject material, nevermind that I do enjoy them so much. These irises faithfully poke their heads thru the earth every spring in my yard. I painted them last spring, and I can hardly wait to see them this year, especially with all the snow and ice we've had this winter. This painting struck a chord with a visitor to my studio who bought it before it was dry...maybe I should be less afraid of flowers!
