Softly Bloomed - White Iris


Softly Bloomed is the second iris completed this week following my visit to Argyle Acres Iris Farm last weekend. An hour before the big storm hit Saturday morning here in North Texas, Carlos and I were in iris heaven, wandering around the acreage and taking pictures of every iris variety you could imagine. Carlos had his little pencil and the order list, and we were picking out favorite rhizomes (Irises grow from rhizomes, not bulbs, we were told) for the next planting season.

Happy painting everyone!

Hi Nancy,

Ah, your Iris paintings are gorgeous. After that wonderful trip you took, no wonder you are so inspired. I went to the botanical gardens here in NY yesterday for a spring flower show and was able to take so many photos, very inspiring for paintings.

So happy to have discovered your blog and your gorgeous work.

Absolutely beautiful Nancy. You make it look oh so easy.
Happy painting,

Congratulations on the new gallery opportunity, I hope you have lots of success!

Sorry I haven't been around lately, my family life has kept me off the computer.

Hi Nancy
You are right- it is soft looking, so sweet.
Everything you do- you turn to magic and just wants me to smell them and touch them-
it's so fun to hear your joy!
