Iris. An original acrylic painting.

W. 16.5 x H. 16.5"


Iris is the fifth in my series of stained glass effect paintings inspired by the art of Tiffany and Georgia O' Keeffe.


I used Golden acrylics on heavy mixed media paper to create this lovely painting of an Iris. Blue and red were blended to create the different tones for the petals, with touches of yellow and white for the highlights. The blue and yellow were blended for the stem and leaves.
For the background I blended the red and yellow to give a vibrant contrast to the blue-purple flower. I applied many brush strokes to catch the light to create a paint on glass effect.

I used black liquid acrylic to paint a bold outline to represent lead in a stained glass panel.


The painting has my signature on the front and on the back my name with the paintings title, date and dimensions.


All paintings are securely packaged in acid free tissue paper, cellophane, ridged cardboard and one inner card backed envelope and one outer padded envelope.
