Purple Iris 11 x 14 Inch Oil Painting on Canvas Panel

I have been on an iris kick apparently.  I keep painting what is basically the same iris.  It started with a photo from a painting group I am in and I think I have painted it four or five times.  I’ve used paint brushes and palette knives and mixtures of both so they are all a little different.  I am enjoying experimenting with purples and blues. Anyhow, here is another iris!

Jemez Iris #2, 12 x 16 Inch Oil Painting

This Iris was painted for Challenge #7, Let’s Paint New Mexico.  The photograph that inspired my iris painting was taken in Jemez, New Mexico.  I am loving the purples.
