Blue Siberian Iris in Watercolor

After many, many months away from my art blog, I’m back. No excuses. 

I won’t bore you with my plans to post more frequently. I won’t tell you about my exciting plans to move this blog to a new WordPress site with a portfolio section and all the bells and whistles. I will, however, ask you to please watch this space as I continue my art journey.

I did get my brushes wet in 2013. Here is my best watercolor effort from last year. I also took photos of it as a Work In Progress (WIP) so I’ll put together a video and post it here and on my YouTube channel so you can see more of the process.

This is a blue siberian iris I have struggled to keep alive in my back yard. I may have to move it to get this beautiful bloom again, since my Basset hound loves to nose it and try to dig it up. 

Carry on!
