Yellow Iris

This is a watercolor I did of a yellow and white iris. The image is a 16" X 20". I try to do a watercolor every year as a demonstration painting for my high school art students. This is an older painting that I want someone to see. Much of my work never makes it out of the studio. I really love painting flowers and so many other things. I wish I had a separate body to paint each subject that I am fascinated with because I will never be able to cover all of them in my lifetime.
This is a moment. I will live each moment fully. Then when death comes, and it always does, it will be a culmination of well lived moments, not an end. And no, I am not dying but each day I am one step closer to that moment.
