I have gorgeous gigantic purple iris blooming in the yard now for the second year in a row. My neighbor gave me the bulbs a couple of years ago and I planted them and forgot them. Last year I had a few blooms and made a nice painting that quickly sold so this year I wanted to be sure to paint them again. One is a commission for a neighbor and the other one will be available. Here is the underpainting so far from this morning. They are both quite large pieces - one is 40" x 30" and the other is 40" x 24"
