yellow iris à la Georgia O'Keeffe

To Quote Georgia O'Keeffe, "So I said to myself-I'll paint what I see-what the flower is to me but I'll paint it big and they will be surprised into taking the time to look at it-I will make even busy New Yorkers take time to see what I see of flowers."

 

Macro shot of a yellow iris from my gardens, the petals are so delicate that they are a touch translucent here.

The only post production was to crop my original photo.

Thank you very much for your views, invitations, faves, and comments!
