"Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!
Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things."
Philippians 4:4-8

Mondays are usually pretty jam-packed, but I managed to find some time to continue work on these irises. I'm really pleased with the way this one is coming along.

These particular irises, which are growing in my neighbor Penny's FABULOUS front garden, have a really sweet history which she shared with me one afternoon as I was admiring the blossoms. I plan to share that story when I post the final painting.

Meanwhile, I hope you find this painting's progress interesting and enjoyable!

Hi there!
Thanks so much for your comments on my blog - The verse you left here is my absolute favorite (of course, I think I say that about every verse I like - ha!) I keep it plastered on my 'motivation board' in my studio.
I just love, love your artwork. Wow..
I have always wanted to dive into acrylics and I am sure one day I will... for now, I am still stuck in my watercolor world :)
Thank you again for your kind comments! God bless!
