Alphabet Challenge I - Iris
Today it is
And with the letter I
I am showing you
Oh I wished I could remember
exactly when I painted this.
It was actually early on
in my painting life.
One of my fav paintings.
One of my fav shots.
The lighting was just perfect.
So far this baby has not bloomed
this year. Love this color.
Found these at our local library
by the play ground last year.
My teacher told me that an iris
was one of the hardest painting
of flowers to do....but I nailed it.
Seemed I was pretty good at it.
Keep in mind folks,
I am 57 and I did
not start painting till I was
I did have a couple of art classes
in high school, for credits of course! haha
And never did anything when I left
school. One day I picked up some
color pencils and started drawing.
My mom suggested I take a painting
class and if I would she would
even pay for it.
I messed around and never
checked into it.
One day visiting my brother
my mom saw women going in a house
2 doors down, across the street and
they were carrying canvas.
Mom walked down there to check
things out. Got a phone number for
me to call. I ended up taking
painting from Shirley for 5 years.
Not that it took that long to learn,
it was a meeting place, a get together
with a great group of people.
So anyway, I learned that it is
never to late to learn something!
Thanks for stopping in,
