Alas, no time to write tonight… I’ll be up late, working to make an 8am deadline for an architectural illustration project. So, instead, here is my own little garden-inspired art show just for you.  Enjoy!

I love the graceful arc of iris stems. They fit best on pieces that are tall:

And it’s fun to wrap those stems around a curved surface:

Of course, there are other kinds of purple flowers…

Even a pale bloom looks nice against a deep, rich background:

Have a wonderful evening! Here’s a favorite little sketch to close the art show:
