11.5"x8.5" Soft Pastel on LaCarte pastel paper
Finished this yesterday while @ Iron & Lace, Bentonsport, IA. The Iris was one of many from the flower bed just outside the store. It was put in water and sat on the front desk for a few days. I decided to keep the background and items around the Iris out of focus. It was a busy scene with the candyball machines behind the Iris and glass lamp/papers beside the bottle. The color of the flower was definitely the show stopper.
Taking this painting to show in Marshalltown, IA this weekend. It's Sunday - "Linn Creek Art Festival" 10am to 5pm held at the Fisher Community Center in Marshalltown.
