Title: Striped Iris in Purple and White | Medium: Oil on board | Jewel series
Striped Iris in purple and white is an oil painting on birch board, size 8 x 10 inches. This study is done in a brushy style with subtle yet visible strokes with a portion of the gessoed white background showing through. Bearded irises fascinate me. Especially the ones with vivid stripes and spots. It's as if the flower itself has been painted, and then I'm adding emphasis and bringing out aspects that speak to me. This work belongs to my Jewel Paintings™ series which are all small format. Please email me for further details including availability of original artwork.
