Under the Irises

Under the Irises  Oil on wood, 8" x 8,"  SOLD
The lovely irises never bloomed beyond what you see here.  I had hoped to photo them again for future paintings...  Maybe the walk from Trader Joe's to my car was too much exposure to the cold air...  I'm satisfied with this painting, though may try it again (bigger) sometime.

  1. They didn’t open because they were harvested too early. It doesn’t happen too often but it happens. They were probably grown in or near Holland and in an effort to get them here at their peak they are harvested while the buds can barely be seen. You can’t tell by looking at them if they will open or not. Beautiful painting Diane. Love the flowers even if the iris didn’t open all the way.
