This is one of my recent paintings. This is an iris which I have titled, "Golden Girl". It is oil on canvas, painted with my glazing technique, which involves a gray underpainting with many color glazes applied over it. With this painting, I received an "Artist of the Year" at our local art club, the Peoria Fine Arts Association. Shortly after, this painting received an "Honorable Mention" at the Arizona State Fair, 2011, and just recently, at the Glendale Art Competition, 2012, it received a "First Place In Oil", and it was sold at this last show.
