Here's a blue frilly iris with angels in the air. In those flowery days I combined irises with just about anything that would complement their extravagant beauty. I was appealing to a specific market, flower-loving lady customers, but I also had to add in a fantasy element in order to place these paintings in fantasy art shows at conventions. I ended up selling them, often for very low prices. My records show that this "Angelic" iris sold for only $15. I wonder what became of it, and the person who bought it at Disclave (then the Washington, DC area regional convention) in 1991.
"Iris of Angelic Air" is watercolor on illustration board, 7" x 10", May 1991.
