Lovely Iris Dancer -Paint Party Friday


I adore the Iris--when I was a girl they grew everywhere.  They were velvety petaled, in rich colors of blue, gold and red.  To celebrate this lovely flower, I drew this Iris Dancer as she twirls through my garden, celebrating those long summer days with her dance.

Above is my lovely reference model Jessica.  You can find her inspiring photography at Faestock. She's a very talented young lady who tells stories with her poses. 

Thank you for dropping by.  Your visits truly make my day! May the joy of summertime dance fill your hearts, dear ones.  Happy Paint Party Friday!

I agree with you Iris is a fine flower. Comes in many colors. I saw one last week all white. And the largest I have seen. So beautiful.

So pretty! Irises have been blooming for a couple weeks here in northern Illinois. My favorite is almost like a flame colored yellow and orange-brown one.
