  This deserted old barn resides in our lovely Blue Ridge Mountains.  What a beautiful setting to "age in place".

"Iris for Carla"

                                                    12" x16"
                                                    oil on canvas
I painted this for a dear friend of mine.  She's a lovely lady who shares her love and kindnesses with me (and others) in so many ways.  You'd never know her favorite color is purple!  I have several varieties of Iris growing in my garden-none just like these.  I gave them the colors just to suit my wishes for this painting.  This is the first oil painting that I have done in quite some time.  Presently, I find myself immersed in using this medium for who knows how long.  More oil paintings in various subjects to follow in coming posts.
