Tennessee Iris 061
Julie has these gorgeous Tennessee Iris's blooming in our flower bed. I was very nervous about painting one, they are so beautiful and of course, all I could think about was how well Van Gogh did them. Could mine even compare? Big shoes. I had one long canvas left and it was perfect for the job, I just hope it is dry before the Cotton Pickin' Festival!
I will have a booth at the Cotton Pickin' Festival in Gay this Saturday and Sunday. I moved to Gay 2 years ago and really enjoyed the festival, the art, the crafts, the antiques and best of all... the food! I had toyed with the idea of trying a festival, but my work is large and expensive, thus fits better in galleries. However, I think these daily paintings will do well! They are small and inexpensive and people know what they are! So, if you are around Gay, come see me this weekend!
