"Iris and Foxgloves" by Elizabeth Ruffing

These are two of my favorite flowers, and I especially like to plant them together in my garden. They are shown here on an overcast day because I love the way the outdoors, and in particular, how the garden looks, just before a thunderstorm. The sky gets darker, but somehow, the colors of everything around you seem to glow. I’ve set the iris against a hazy, darkened background of blues and greens, which makes their warm peach-pink color stand out. I added a border of delicate leaves and little flowers on muted teal green to enclose the scene.

This is a new, hand-signed, fine art giclée print made from my original watercolor painting "Iris and Foxgloves". The image is approximately 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches on 8 1/2 x 11 inch fine art paper. It is signed in pencil below the image, leaving a nice white border for ease in framing. It comes in a protective cello sleeve. It is available in my Etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=5385859

10% of sales (less shipping) from my Etsy shop, elizabethruffing.etsy.com, and my mom's Etsy shop, aeruffing.etsy.com, will go to animal charities.
