The Force That Through The Green Fuse

...Drives the Flower. 
I love that first line by Dylan Thomas.
Another large painting resulting after lots of painting sessions from the day that I was given so many  fresh  irises at the Waco Iris Show. 
This one is in the private collection of some art lovers here in Wheaton.
Acrylic on canvas 30" by 36"

Hey Janice, Julie L sent me an email saying that you'll be showing at "One Of A Kind" in Chicago. I took a look at your website and love your work. It reminds me of a funky Van Gogh style. Very cool! You should do well at the show. Good Luck!

We really, really like this one! :) We especially like the different shades of blue.

Hi, Aunt Janice! We haven't even seen you yet, and we know you're just a couple minutes away... we keep hearing about you.
See you soon!?

Love your irises, Janice! I grew up not that far from Waco, btw. We had irises growing in some places almost like wildflowers!

Ahhh...the ol Dylan Thomas quote! Love the mysteriousness of this Iris painting.
