Blossom XXIII: Iris


“…Every day I discover even more beautiful things.

It is intoxicating me, and I want to paint it all –

my head is bursting…”


Claude Monet



“The priceless lesson in the New Year

is that endings birth beginnings and beginnings birth endings.

And in this elegantly choreographed dance of life,

neither ever find an end in the other.”


Craig D. Lounsbrough

  2. Your irises are already in bloom! I’m 3 states south of you, and we’re still waiting!

  3. The form shows off to such advantage in the white Iris.
