Iris was the name of the Greek goddess of the rainbow. The only Iris that I know is my sister’s Macaw. She has glorious colored feathers. I would say that this was a perfect name for her.
About this Collection
This is one of many small oil paintings in my series titled ‘Women’. They each represent family, friends and other women who bring inspiration in our daily lives. This project started out as a study for future color palettes for my larger paintings and emerged as little gems. At first when it came time to name each piece, I realized that each had their own personalities and reminded me of individuals that have touched my life in some way.
