Believe


"Believe"
20 x 20 x 1.5 inches, Oil on Canvas
My friend, Sandy was visiting last week and from her seat she can look into my painting room where this painting was sitting on an easel. She wanted to look at it closer so she walked into the room and then walked back to her seat and looked at it...and she said, how interesting that from here I can tell that you've painted irises but when you go close to it you see colors and don't really see the irises. And in Monet's way of saying, it's my "impression" of irises...
If you believe, these are irises....
