Reclining Irises

Reclining Irises on orange 
18X36          Acrylic on wood panel
This is last weeks painting, basically done, may tweak the odd bit, or I might not.    I based it off some palette choices and a couple of design elements from a painting a number of years ago (the warm arrangement, see below). The other day I posted the old painting on facebook and thought, yes I liked that painting. So I decided to work from it and adapt some newer subject matter into an old painting, or perhaps adapt some old ideas into some new subject matter... well you get the idea. Artistic license was taken with the background and tablecloth to incorporate the old painting elements in the new subject.
