Julie Hill on January 28, 2010 at 5:20 pm You have such patience Krista…i fear my paintings are just the opposite of yours!!! JeannetteLS on January 28, 2010 at 5:51 pm Krista,The iris you are painting is my late sister's favorite. It is already beautiful. I so love working a little at a time on my paintings, filling in details. It's all so NEW to me, this feeling confidence in my artwork. Like a miracle. So is your work. I love how the richness of the fall petals is emerging. I called this sort of iris "caterpillar" irises when I was little. Your blog's a joy. Angela on January 28, 2010 at 7:42 pm Looking gorgeous! I especially love those little splashes of aqua near the flower center! Christiane Kingsley on January 28, 2010 at 7:59 pm Krista, this painting is becoming more and more beautiful with each brushstroke. The velvety texture of the petals is wonderful. Joan Sicignano Artist on January 28, 2010 at 9:31 pm Krista, your work is outstanding. I love your web site. All the best to you. Sheila on January 28, 2010 at 11:20 pm I'm lovin' that touch of teal on the petals already. Sandeep Khedkar on January 29, 2010 at 1:40 am I am loving it! The rich purple is amazing!

Krista Hasson on January 29, 2010 at 3:40 pm Thank you Stephie, Patricia, Julie, Jeannette (you are too kind!), Angela, Christiane, Joan, Sheila, Sandeep and Vicki.The teal color is actually not paint, it is masking fluid, it will be a bright yellow when finished. 🙂 Jocelyn T.
