Iris in Purple and White Stripes

Striped Iris in purple and white is an oil painting on birch board, size 8 x 10 inches. This study is done in a brushy style with subtle yet visible strokes of oil paint, and a portion of the gessoed white background showing through. Bearded irises fascinate me. Especailly the ones with vivid stripes and spots. It's as if the fower itself has been painted and then I get to add emphasis and bring out aspects I like as I create the painting. This work belongs to my Jewel Paintings™ series which are all small format.
