I'm No Van Gogh!

And no photographer, obviously, either! Sorry for the shadow on the top of the canvas. This is a very bad photo, too 'mustard-y' but I'm very bad with Photoshop, too (OK, am I listing my faults here, too? I'm disorganized and NO housekeeper! On the 'plus' side I am loyal....) OK, back to the art, these are the 'black' irises, though upon close (and I mean really close) inspection, they're dark purple, navy and magenta actually. And this isn't done, either. When it is I'll re-post.

stop right there...they look great the way they are! (ok YOU'RE the artist and YOU know when they are done but I love them the way they are...I think they would make a cool fabric pattern...they're very "designy." (I don't think that's a word....)

Kelley, your post titles and your commentary are so entertaining!
I'd like to see this up close too.

Thanks, Paula and Mary. This actually is looking better than the photo. And 'design-y' was what I was going for, so YAY!

You know, it's funny about titles. My 'serious pieces', my studio, or even plein air pieces have the most BORING names (Sakonnet Bridge... Westport Dunes..) but I have fun with these

I like this one a lot ... the rich, dark irises against that bright background is lovely! I'm with Paula, I think it's great the way it is, but if you say it needs more work, can't wait to see the final!

BTW, I'm disorganized and NO housekeeper, too. Nice to know I'm in such great company!

Stop picking on yourself. My yellow Irises are out after a several year drought! YAY.
