Yellow Iris with Oregon Swallowtail

I love this painting. It has a lot of movement. I modeled my strokes after a Van Gogh painting of yellow irises. In the lower right-hand corner there is an Oregon Swallowtail butterfly. It looks like it is about to land on a leaf. The inspiration for this painting came from a photograph I took of wild yellow irises at Lake Sacajawea.
