Iris and Grapefruit
oil on canvas
I've always loved this painting. I painted this from the first (and some
of the few) Irises that grew in my yard from some bulbs Aunt Bunny sent
me. (I think the moles or gophers or something ate the bulbs later.) They
are luscious flowers. The vase is one we got as a wedding gift. This originally
had a small statue I had cast in it. I later felt that detracted from
the irises and replaced with the white iris.
