Modest Beauty

"Modest Beauty"
11x18 oil on linen

With three sheer delicate petals bending outward and three raised up covering its innermost parts, the iris seems to be a modest beauty. One of my dear friends brought a bouquet of irises from her garden to encourage me during a difficult time. This was the last of all the lovely irises that bloomed.

Rebecca, very touching and a beautiful painting. The soft complements work well.
