Purple Pleaser Iris - 8X8 Floral Painting

Purple Pleaser Iris by Nancy Medina


Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Daily Painters Gallery

This little iris was my way of tiptoeing up to a much larger iris garden painting I finished this morning. I've been painting up a storm preparing for two art shows in March. One will be Friday evening, March 5, at The Good Art Company Gallery. I'm excited to be the featured artist at the Gallery for the month of March.

The second show will be at the juried event, Artscape at the Dallas Arboretum March 20-21. If the weather is kind to the tulips, this will be the best time to visit the Arboretum. The show will coincide with the Dallas Blooms festival. I hope you will come by the Arboretum and say hello to me, and be sure to bring the family. If it's warm enough, the frog fountains will be going full blast and the kiddos can splash their toes a little right next to about 95 art tents. I promise I'll get another photo tour for you, if I can sneak away for a few moments. This year I have a better camera so cross your fingers and toes that the tulip photos will turn out!
