Purple & Red Bearded Iris Art Completed Painting + September Sketches, Sketch 8, Goddess...



"Variegated Bliss" Original Painting Sold, Giclee Prints & LE ACEO Prints Here

I completed this purple and crimson bearded iris painting a while back, the original was painted in oils on panel.  It sold after it came back home from the El Festival de las Flores show it was in at the Neutra Institute Gallery & Museum, I didn't get a chance to add it to my website until now.  I love irises, there is something almost magical to me in their beauty.  The art has an impressionist realist feel.  I'd like to add this one as an 8"x10" giclee print and LE ACEO print into the mix of my first Tuesday auctions when I next do a group of purple flowers, I hope that will be in November; but they will also be at the link above on my website regardless of that.


This is a completed work, I also usually post at least one finished piece on Tuesdays if you'd like to come to visit!  You also may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.

I'm joining in this week with Paint Party Friday.  To see more participants, please visit:

=====================================================


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has a sweetness to her...  I think she is most likely a moon goddess, although she could also be a fairy angel or a goddess.  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in September. This is day 8. 

I am also participating in the September 29 Faces Challenge! The goal is to share 29 faces in the month of September.  I may extend it out to a goal of 100 faces sketched on consecutive days...

This is a rough sketch.

Iris is a flower which my grandmother planted all over her village yard on her large premises but a bit remoted from the civilization... Your paintings is for me like a travel to my childhood with my grandmother... Really, your painting is great!
