Here's a 12x9 iris painting. I'm enjoying the look of the colorful flowers against the duller gray backdrops. Plus that white bud vase, which is fun to paint everytime--as it basically just mimics whatever colors are around it. Will do more of these.


  1. You know, that gray background is really powerful. I noticed it right away. These flower still lifes are beautiful.

  2. Ahhhhhhh, very nice. It must be the grey background that gives this painting such a nice peaceful feeling.

  3. Really beautiful, colors, composition, shapes, everything!!

  4. Nice work, Diane--unusual and effective color combinations. Great lost and found edges, too.
