Spring, that time of year when the outside no longer looks cold and uninviting, but rather full of life with a color palette of warm greens, yellows, purples, blues, and reds. The songs sung by birds and the smell of wonderful fragrance fills the air. I love this season so much that the sneezing, itchy eyes, and headaches from the pollen doesn't even get me down.
One of my favorite things about Spring is the blooming Irises growing in my front yard (oh, how I wish they would bloom spring and summer *sigh). Every year I take pictures in hopes that I will one day paint these flowers.
I woke up one Monday morning and thought..."Why not take my easel outside and spend this beautiful day painting." So that is what I did, I painted my Irises.
