Original Oil Painting Strong Blue Iris

Strong Blue Iris


9' X 12"
Painted on gessobord.

It has been quite a challenge to paint as of late. My ninety three old father has been in and out of rehab, hospital and nursing home for the past couple of months. Dad is staying strong even thou his body is failing and the whole family is helping as best as we can. This painting of a blue Iris expresses my father's strength against the unbeatable hot background that threatens him. The green spiky leaves are all the people trying to help. There is a real battle of color in this painting as there is in my father's life now.
