THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
An eternal symbol of the everlasting link between heaven and earth, the Iris has long commemorated the personal path that many take on their journey to spiritual fulfillment. The Irises in Field Painting brings this to mind with the way the purple blossoms stretch high above the mundane grass surrounding them, each of them in different phases of blooming to suggest the varying paths that people take in terms of faith. Most of the irises are open completely, exposing their cores to the warm light of the sun. This piece is great for any room in the home and serves as a hopeful reminder to remain strong in your faith.
