Pat's Garden

Pat's Garden

The newest member of the Painting in the Round Series, IRIS, has been a challenge to my learning curve. Working from a photograph I took earlier this summer in Pat’s garden, I thought it would be exact in it’s details, however my skills with brush and technique are the area of deepest learning. Very quickly I realized that the surreal was pushing ¬†through. Well I do love the contrast between the starkness of blossom and the fizzy green ground cover, ¬†learning to allow the fire of inspiration to direct the whole rather than over critical mind talk has given me treasure.
