Noveau Iris

Last night I was thrilled to see an promo for the new Georgia O'Keeffe movie on Lifetime with Joan Allen playing the independent artist. It airs Saturday, Sept. 19.

In honor of that, I thought I'd post one of my favorite, "larger than life," Georgia-inspired floral paintings. This is transparent watercolor with oil pastel accents. Though not my original intention, I liked how a winged feminine form also seemed to emerge from the painting.
