Iris histrioides

Look carefully at God’s great love, the Father uses the words “my children” when He thinks about us. We have to remember this. The only reason we and others don’t remember this is because ” we and they “forget to spend time knowing Jesus.

1 John 3:1 (Sandy’s understanding of this verse)

This pale blue Iris comes out of the ground alone without any leaves. It stands about 6 inches/ 15cm tall. This was taken on 15 March.

Today it is 17 March. Welcome to our world . The Iris is now fully open. It is Saint Patrick’s day.

The light is from a grey sky.
It is a natural light falling on a delicate flower .
All its curls and lemonyellow touches on different tints of blue.
So much to see when looking into it.
An open face.
I picked it.

Because watercolour actually moves on the paper, it is the most active of mediums, almost a performance art. What I love about watercolour is that a lot of happy accidents occur.

Here are the two stages of the Iris opening.
Wednesday the petals are still curled. Friday it has opened completely.
I enjoyed being with this Iris in the early morning both times.
Such a privilege to really look.

Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life.

Words are small shapes in the gorgeous chaos of the world…they bring the world into focus, they corral ideas, they hone thoughts, they paint a watercolour of perception.

It is so fine and yet so terrible to stand in front of a blank canvas.

Genius is the ability to renew one’s emotions in daily experience.

Thank you for letting me share this experience with you.
