Oh, Iris, 18x18 inch Acrylic by Kelley MacDonald

This is a rather large one, compared with what I've been posting lately.  I've been allowing myself to paint larger, and more 'painterly' (expressive brushstrokes).  I did a vase of sunflowers a couple of days ago, and all afternoon worked on this - I wanted the silhouette to be strong, and I wanted the purple to be dimensional.  Then I played with the background - with white and 2 different yellows and a violet added, and thick paint.  This will be at my Art Al Fresco on Sunday - it was cancelled last week for weather.  Bristol is a beautiful little town, if you are around you should visit.  All my art will have special pricing, as I really don't have room to keep it and want people who WANT it to have it. If you are interested in purchasing this before it goes to Bristol on Sunday just email me at  and title the email "Iris Painting".  Anyway... here's the info:



  1. Gorgeous purples and lavenders! Love the lipsticks piece too. But now I am just wanting jelly donuts!

  2. I absolutely LOVE this!!! simply gorgeous! And thank you for the kind words!
