White Iris

I'm proud to announce that this painting has been sold.

The purchaser, who has a beautiful new home, said he wants to "fill his house with color."

That's exciting for me, because I love color so much!

To get started, I visited Lake Sacajawea and took photos of rhododendron blossoms. There were so many different colors and shapes!

After that Allan and I each did a plein air painting at the Japanese Gardens. As soon as the paint is dry, I'll post it. I like how it turned out.

In the meantime, I'm working out some ideas (in my mind) for new paintings! That, along with finishing up several larger works that I hope will convince a Portland gallery to accept me.

Stay tuned!
