Check out the SCALE~


Well.... every now and again i paint large. it's not often.. and it's getting more difficult...but these iris' needed to be huge.

I have shown them on digital format... but here is an idea of how big they are... 'cause I'm standing next to them.

Each painting is larger than life... and holds a lot of impact.

Carol, thank you for showing us the real sizes.
This painting is magnificently bright.
On the first photo, did you imitate the posture of your iris?
I smiled...
You are going to receive a package of France which left last Saturday...

You're right about the impact of a large, beautiful painting! But you should smile more :) Gorgeous colors, as usual, and love the large format!
