Lacy Gladiolus

Oil Painting Flower Sword Lilly Art Still Life Botanical Garden

Oil on canvas hardboard, 8" x 6"

This was my first home-grown Gladiolus and also my first painting of one.  I decided to paint the bloooms close-up and as more of a series of shapes in sunlight and shade rather than complete flowers.  This is what seemed to appeal to me as I observed them.  I may decide to paint them in more of a traditional manner also!  I didn't know that Glads are in the Iris family and are sometimes called Sword Lillies.
