I'm not sure if I'm done with this Iris or not - the series may not be done- but I think this piece needs work - however, I'm going to leave it alone for a while - Pastel on colorfix paper 8 1/2" x 11 1/2". The background is weird but that is what happened - it reminds me of some old fashioned William Morris motif - I just love the colors in the central large petal on the blossom - and have yet to do them justice -
I was recently diagnosed with stage IV small cell lung cancer - so I am enjoying my life and living one day at a time - Making art makes me happy.
I play hammered dulcimer and that makes me happy too.
I have a great husband and our two grown children are married so now we have four wonderful children. I am fortunate to have a close, loving, extended and immediate family.
