"Wild Irish Iris", oil/canvas

Once upon a time the Nolan family took a trip to Ireland to see the "old country" (on my husband's side). We stayed in Dingle, Ireland, near Slea Head. The ocean beckoned, so of course we went to it. But the fields also beckoned and this is the flower which I saw growing wild. Quite the surprise.

We're past the iris season now, but I always look forward to the next one. Maybe tomorrow I'll post my latest glass painting, "The Four Irises" (as opposed to The Three Tenors!).

Have a good day.

"Wild Irish Iris", in private collection, maybe I can paint one for you!
