Sat in my garden and painted these last night. I didn't have any of my small panels or boards, so I used what I could find - a 9x12 canvas. The surface was a bit absorbent for some reason, and the paint went on in a washy, watercolor-like fashion - you can really see it on the bottom two flowers. My irises are very special to me, and I have 3 types, bearded black, bearded ice blue, and these. The black ones have gone by, and the ice blue ones got stomped by the small pug who runs my life.. :) Oh, Paco!!!!
