Red and Yellow Iris by Julie Riker
Beth and I met in Gettysburg yesterday to paint with Jim Bricker and some of his friends. We went to Beech Spring farm. It is a beautiful preserved farm that is used for weddings and special events. It is really quite lovely - but too manicured for my taste. Feeling uninspired by the landscape, I decided to focus in on these pretty flowers.
I am starting to feel like my paintings are getting looser and the colors are getting brighter...must be the nice spring weather!
