Irises #1 by Mary Beth Brath
20x28" Acrylic on Masonite
Perhaps you saw on facebook that I am obsessing over Irises right now. I am like Forrest Gump deciding to go for a run.
The title is simple so I can just number them and keep going. The first one is reminiscent of Vincent Van Gogh's Irises. I just finished painting a rain barrel with this motif and it was still running through my veins. I decided to paint one for myself. It hangs in my dining room with my 1910 furniture and art pottery by Weller and McCoy.
Much of my work has post-impressionistic influences and I have been wanting to do one of these for years.
