Lively Iris


Lively, lavender iris still life oil painting by Mary Benke www.marybenke.com

6x6 inch oil on gessoboard panel

Our irises were lovely this year from our abundant rain! I tried to give this "lively' lavender iris some personality with active brushstrokes and some calligraphic marks, as well as setting it against a vibrant dark green background.
