Iris abstraction 12


This is a new updated version of an old favorite of mine, Purple Iris 5. I took the reference photo last year, and I have used it in many different ways. I wanted to see if I could do something new with it and I like what I did with it.

  1. I like your new look here. I like the palette. Gray is unusual in an iris composition. Interesting. It's also interesting that you have only four stigmata, when compositionally an odd number works better, (so we're told). You do make them work however. Very nice Roger.

    1. Thanks Linda. I go with the gut feeling in the end, but it is true there are some rules/guidelines. But on the other hand, rules are there to be broken sometimes.

  5. I really love what you are doing with reworking your older paintings. There is a certain vitality and freshness here Roger that I can't put into words, but when I look at it, your painting makes me feel hope, happiness, and just joyful about life. Now if that's not art I don't know what is. :)

    1. Thanks Crystal.
      This one is a new version, not a rework. I like the original painting, but I have grown a lot since then and I wanted to see if it would look different if I did it now.

      There are old paintings that might lack skill or experience, but are good ideas and composition. Some may be worth to do once again. =)

  6. After your note I went and looked at your other one (I didn't realize it was two different paintings at first, I blame my blonde hair. :) and WOW what a difference! Your use of color is and line and drawing is still amazing, but I was really surprised at how more expressive and filled with energy this newer painting was.

    I really, really love it Roger.
