Iris in a Glass

Iris in a Glass

  • Oil on Canvas
  • 12″ x 9″
  • In a private collection

Hearty marigolds, mums and nasturtiums are the only flowers now surviving autumn’s chilly nights. Objects of summer outdoor living are disappearing into storage or are being covered for protection against the ravages of the coming season. Inside, soup simmers on the stove and the furnace hums. Where did the summer go? In looking through my portfolio, this piece carries me back to the beginning of summer. A single object painting is like fishing; a meditation of observation in which there is no time, just the pleasure of being.

    Ummm! Reminds me of Georgia O’Keefe’s style. Irises always bring memories of our little Abigail Grace. Her ashes scattered among the iris blossoms.
    Love you girl, Trish
