This week has been full of things to finish. Finish getting the kids in school, finish setting up my studio, and finally finish the iris painting! It has been great to work on Center of the Universe since I have more time to work on detailed pieces.
I was asked a few months ago if I would be interested in showing at the American Iris Convention being held at the Empress Hotel in Victoria. Of course I said yes!
Irises are a personal favorite of mine because they remind me of my grandmother. She always had irises in her garden. My grandmother lived with my parents shortly before she passed away. The spring following her passing, my parent’s garden bloomed full of irises. There must have been hundreds. My grandmother probably knew she would not live much longer. She had planted all those irises, unbeknownest to anyone, to remind us that she will always be with us even after she was gone.
Thank you Grandma for such a beautiful memory.
