"Iris" is a popular perennial garden flower beloved by gardeners and bees alike. The fuzzy "beard" helps to guide the pollenating insects to the center of the blossom where to nectar is. There are many varieties and colors to choose from.
This original mixed media artwork was drawn with a water soluble pen with my non dominant hand on a collaged substrate of papers including some from a vintage textbook on beekeeping. I added a wash of gesso before doing my drawing, then brought the piece to life with watercolors.
The artwork is 4" x 6" on paper and will be shipped to you in an archival sleeve so that you can frame it to your liking.
