You'll Think of Me - Small Floral Still Life Painting

You'll Think of Me
6 x 6 inches
acrylic on 1-1/2" gallery wrapped canvas

Another flower on the boxy gallery wrapped canvases - really love the way they sit out from the wall. I think I will call these my "Wall Flower" series  ;-) They will be going to Pop Gallery in Gloucester, Massachusetts in a few weeks.

(from a slight angle on my easel)

I love irises - I so look forward to seeing them bloom each spring, definitely my favorites. I have a bunch of these purple Japanese irises in my yard that I transplanted from my Grandmother's garden more than twenty years ago and have moved with me twice. And my Grandmother had originally transplanted them from her mother-in-law's garden many, many years ago - so they have quite the history!

Painting time is scarce this week - the kids are out of school for February break, so these flowers are coming along more slowly than planned. I am also sitting here looking at a pile of show applications and exhibition prospectuses. Eeek! Time for me to go through them and make some commitments - always a scary thing for me to do. Anyways I will update my schedule soon with lots of exciting stuff coming up.....
