This surely is the wildest Iris I have painted. I also painted the background with Gold paint. I am interested in using Gold Leaf or Metal leaf. Has anyone used Gold Leaf? I would be so interested in how you used it. I would love to hear from you. I am working on Three Plums and I am really happy with it. The colors are as calm as this painting is wild. The weather is gorgeous today, totally different than yesterday. I wish you all a wonderful day.
I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I went to college when I was 37 years old. I loved it so much, I was a sponge and absorbed anything and everything about art. I started out wanting to be a portrait artist but ended up using pencil and colored pencils. I made quite a name for myself with my drawings. I won many awards. When I needed a break from that I went into oil sticks and just loved them and again did very well with awards. I finally went back to my oils but always felt frustrated with them I wanted to be free from all constraints, I am now working in acrylics and loving them. So now the sky is the limit. I just want to go and do everything I feel and want to express.
