"Night White Iris" by Polly Jones, 12" by 12" oil on gallery wrapped canvas with 1 and 3/8" profile, no frame needed

It's so great to get back to doing some small paintings. I've been working on a larger oil which I will be posting later. This iris was growing in our garden. It survived several risky situations including the dogs trampling near it and a hail storm. Irises are just about my favorite flower though that's as hard to pick out as a favorite color. Recently my husband got me a book on Manet that has reminded me how much I love his work, especially the small still lifes he did late in life. This iris painting is a response to those wonderful Manets. SOLD
