The Japanese Iris

I love the way the purples and yellows look together.  This painting was fairly simple.  I only planned to paint the flowers over a yellow background.  Adding the wrinkled paper effect gave an extra dimension to the piece that made it very likable.  I sold it right away.  Amazing.  Sometimes I work for hours, days, weeks on a piece and it never sells.  But when I throw something together simply it has more appeal.  You never know what people will like, do you?

  1. True, you never know what people (will) like. As artists we often overthink, obsessed by details … never satisfied…. wondering what may appeal to a viewer. We shouldn’t, therefore, the quick and dirty (thrown together) piece is a true reflection of the artist – not thinking, not worrying … just doing … and voila 🙂
