Purple Obsession - Iris

Purple Obsession - Iris by Nancy Medina

I confess I have painted purple irises more than once. I have the Argyle Acres Iris Farm to blame for letting me in one afternoon and giving me hours and hours of time to photograph their blossoms. The purples, all 100 varieties, kept calling my name, the black beauties, the grape soda iris, the bouffant iris, the dinner plate iris. I am still finding new purple irises in my old photos I missed the first few thousand times I gazed upon them. What a magnificent day that was at the iris farm. Here's a link to the old blog post, in case (heaven forbid) you missed the tour!
