"Think of the darkest of dark nights when there is no moon. This enchanting iris captures the mystery and intensity of a blue-black 'midnight'."
Artist Comments: "Midnight is not the "official" name of this black iris. It is the title of the painting done with watercolor on 140# hot-pressed paper. I grow this beauty in my garden and it never fails to reward me with multitudes of large blossoms, year after year. I sketched three of the blooms in a modified "C" composition with the largest as a base to weigh the subject, with the two remaining flowers in stages of fullness. I paid special attention to the layering of color to obtain the result of deep rich intensity yet maintaining a look of delicacy in the petals".
