Bearded iris ~ purple and white
colored pencil on hot pressed watercolor paper
Framed size ~ 16" x 20"
This particular iris is a special plant given to me by my late mother-in-law. Martha was quite a gardener. Her beds always put me to shame as we were neighbors for quite a few years. ;) But we always had gardening in common and I treasured that relationship. She had given me starts of this beautiful iris to add to my own garden collection. I loved the striking contrast between the white top and deep purple falls.
