May Iris

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....
