This is one of the first paintings I made for the "Source" series.
These are flowers that were blooming in the Spring in my neighbors gardens.
Lupine grow wild here in Ojai, and really add to the yellow+blue color theme of this artwork. When observing plants and flowers, I like to look at them from all angles, and in this artwork you see an aerial view of the iris as well as a side view. The bachelor buttons are a favorite flower of mine; I seem to recall my mother planting them from seed.
