About the Painting

A bouquet of irises laying on the ground inspired me to paint the rich purple and ultramarine blooms resting against the reddish earth. The impasto brush strokes are expressive and highly textured, capturing the contours and rich hues of the flowers.

This painting was done on 1/8" canvas, and it arrives framed and ready to hang.
