After doing a year's worth of flower pictures in watercolor, I tried some in acrylic, which is more opaque and takes longer to work with. This was a commission from a friend who liked the color orange as much as I do, and had irises in her garden. It was early summer and I incorporated the stormy weather into the picture. The original title is "Stormlord's Flower." I'd put it on a black T-shirt, if I were marketing it, and I'd wear one myself.
"Stormlord's Flower" is acrylic on illustration board, 7" x 10", June 1991.
