Yellow Flag Iris

June 25, 2015 § Leave a comment

Another of the series of West Virginia wildflowers, created after several fine days of botanizing in the mountain woods, filled with fabulous wildflowers, only to be seen by those who know where to look. I was fortunate in having an expert guide, my cousin Heather, who has explored these woods for many years. Thanks, Heather!

Rhododendron

Spring hikes through the mountains of West Virginia will usually discover large stands of rhododendrons like this one. They are a fine sight, though sometimes overwhelming in their size and strength. this is another in the series of small watercolors painted to benefit the Kump Education Center in Elkins WVA.

Sometimes one kind of flower takes over my imagination. This happens most often in the spring, and tulips are often the first and brightest omen of things to come.

This long and narrow watercolor is 7″ x 28″.
