Yellow Iris Dance

Today finds me painting Great Grandmother's yellow iris, which have grown in the cellar as long as I can remember.  Last year, I moved the dwindling clump from the top of the cellar (where the soil is washing away) to the middle tier.  These have doubled,  if not tripled, in our covid year, and I'm so happy to see their robust return.  In celebration, I am capturing their splendor in ink abs watercolor before the expected storms further pummel them.  I just dumped 7 inches of rain out of the rain gage - from the last two days!  I've been neglecting my watercolors lately, and it feels good to pick them up again!  Painting number 3050 in 3050 days.
