Chapeau Iris

Today finds me painting another of Grandma's iris varieties - Chapeau, I think!  This lovely bicolor bearded iris is tall and vigorous, blooming up out of thick daylilies!  I will transplant them this fall to a place they can spread and call their own!  I love their rich color on this rainy day!  Oils were the perfect choice to define their petals!  Painting number 2683 in 2583 days.

  1. Tammie, you have inherited beautiful property with amazing established flora. Have to wonder, do you also live where your relatives once lived? The flowers look so mature and stunning! I like the way you left the upper right corner open to the light.
