The first painting for the 12 days of Paintings and Christmas means so much to me. It’s of the most beautiful iris flower farm near my home where I grew up. Every year they have a “paint out” where artists flood their farm and gardens to paint the scenery. I would go there and participate, and it was always so magical. I started my art career around that age and time, and I still gain momentum thinking of those experiences.
I had a photo tucked away in my files of the iris farm in the early morning, and over the years I’ve been wanting to paint it. When I was gathering my images and places to paint these next twelve days, this image came to mind immediately! It’s always special to finally paint a piece that has been in my mind for years, even more special when it holds so much significance.
This painting is available in my shop. Check back tomorrow for the second painting! 🙂
