Re: Plant Parade August 11

JustJean, this a lovely challenge. Did you realise that a lily has slipped in there?

Gorgeous blue and such shimmery, shivery petals.

We have some just about to flower in the garden. They are new this year so will wait and see what they are like before deciding.

Thinks....would Justjean recognise Monet's irises if I painted a bit on top of a print?..Now there's a cop-out!!

Haha! Great challenge, thank you.

I LOVE iris!!! I will have to join in this month. I've been watching this project every month now for a while, always with the intention of joining. Something seems to keep me too busy, but I plan to participate this time! Thanks for posting my favorite flower to paint!

Re: Plant Parade August 11

Hi all,

I'm here Agnes, beating the bushes looking for my muse, the little rascal is avoiding me..haha

Jean Iris' are beautiful, good choice girlfriend! Mine all went very fast this year with all the heat. I do promise to give it a go, I'll find the little witch cause this black hole thing is not working for me at all...

Thanks for hosting.

And welcome sarales..happy you've been tempted and are going to join us.

Hi Katherine...you should do one of each color.. well ya should...haha

Hugs all round,
Elaine

Re: Plant Parade August 11

Gorgeous flowers and I love Irises! They have such a beautiful form and are so stately. I'll start early this month, so I have my painting done in plenty of time (welllllll!...... that's the plan so far, but famous last words etc!)
