Day 13/30: "Fleur-de-Lis"

Oil on Panel

I found the iris a difficult flower to paint, but I love a challenge, so while I have the blooms I will keep on trying.  I really want to have some variety in subject matter as I paint through the 30 Paintings in 30 Days series, but I don't want to be wasteful AND it is such a good learning experience to paint the same thing over and over.  I may do one or two more before I say good-bye to the iris.  

I am really interested in the fleur-de-lis and its symbolism, too, so I have that added factor in my painting choice.  

I love so many artists and varying styles of painting.  I see one and want to paint that way and then another and want to try his technique.  My goal is to have all of these loves come together to form my own style - without confusing myself.  That takes time.  I can be impatient with myself.  In the meantime, as I'm growing, I hope you enjoy watching the journey. 

Thanks for looking!
