Blue Iris

Blue Iris, 2.5" x 3.5"

The irises bloom along Audubon Lake in the springtime. These yellow beauties caught my eye, sunlit against a deep blue, shadowy curve.

Favorite part: The one descending leaf. The counterpoint shape pleases my eye.

Glen Falls is a local spectacle, located on Ellicott Creek in Williamsville, NY. I was standing on the bride along Main Street, looking down to where the falls cascade over the edge, which is why you see such a sharp edge in the distance. It's a lovely little park, and the falls are impressive. One of these days I'll paint  them, too.

Favorite part: The shady spot in the lower right-hand corner, with the rocks and reflections beneath the overhanging trees.
