Dwarf Iris are up

These came up in our garden a couple weeks ago. They are hybrids, but are very similar in size and form to our native Douglas Iris.

Dwarf Iris, 7" x 7", acrylic on panel

Thanks Chammi, stop by if you're in the neighborhood. I'd be glad to give you a garden tour. Now it's crocus and narcissus.

The drawing in this is a little stiff for me, but thanks for all the very nice replies. I am still learning to loosen up with this medium, especially with botanical studies. Too much study and not enough happy mistakes.

Bill
