I did this painting earlier in the summer.  I saw this iris a few years ago while on a workshop in Valyermo, CA. The workshop was held at St. Andrews Abby which is where Benedictine Monks live and worship.  The Abbey was like a small oasis in the desert, with a beautiful pond at its center and a large grove of trees off to the eastside.  We were expected to follow the rules of the Monks and were not supposed to speak during certain evening hours and we could not talk at meals.  Quite different, but interesting!  The reason I told you all this is because they had beautiful iris plantings and a few were blooming while we were there and of course this was one of them.  It was a nice experience...

Thanks for looking!
