Here it is, nearly mid-June and I'm almost a month behind on my posts! Most of these iris came from the Iris Farm, west of Traverse City. They began blooming 1 - 2 weeks earlier than last year. They let visitors cut stems for $1 each. Since it's been so uncomfortably hot, I just cut stems and brought them home to paint in my studio.
All are painted from life, in oils, on 6x6" stretched canvas.
Too bad I can't show you how good they smelled....
