These are my neighbor's iris that I see across the street, glowing in the morning and evening. I was attracted to the play of the light and shadows on the plants. I did a small one first and then decided to do a large one for my October show at the Baylor Health Sciences Library. The reception is on October 6 from 6:30 to 8:30.
This is a house in my neighborhood from the early 1900s. My focus in this painting was the beautiful purple irises, but I also captured a glimpse of the house at the top of the hill. This is a great neighborhood, the Belmont Addition in Dallas.
