Siberian Iris

"Siberian Iris" -- oil on canvas 6x6" -- Margie Guyot

We'd had a cool, late spring this year.  When it finally warmed up, all the flowers went nuts, flowering as quickly as possible.  I hadn't really painted flowers before.  Doing little 6x6" canvases is new to me, too.  By the time I finally decided to try painting stuff that pops up in my yard, and by the time I got to thinking, "Hey -- why don't I paint a Siberian iris?", this was the last one left!  And it was on its last legs, too. 

Ah, well -- there's always next year!
