Presby Iris Garden

Yesterday my sister and I went to the Presby Iris Garden in Montclair, NY.
There were so many varieties of irises!!!
I did small sketches that are about 3 1/2 x 7.

I painted my sister, Mickey who was also painting.

I tried getting a few of the different varieties.

Here are a few photos from our day.

  3. I am starting to like irises more and more, mostly thanks to artists like you, Joan. These are beautiful paintings and I love seeing your cute wallet!

  4. What a heavenly place! Your paintings are wonderful, Joan! I love irises and was not aware of all the varieties.
    The wallet sketch turned out great!

  5. Irises are among my favorites to paint. Thanks, Sherry.

    Celia, it was such a pretty place to paint. We've painted there before.
