"Ringo And Friends" by Carol Thompson

"A group of tall bearded irises blend their colors and fragrances in beautiful harmony in a formal garden.  The lyrical floral display is nature's happy band of  'Ringo and friends'."

Artist comment:  "I am utterly enchanted by  irises.  To me they are the most graceful, yet flamboyant flowers of the late spring garden.  In this large painting, I have captured on 180#  hot-pressed watercolor paper,  a 'troupe' of divers stems of irises as they bend and sway with the caress of a gentle early summer breeze.  Perhaps they are dancing to the rhythm of some long-ago tune".  The composition was intended to show the one unique silvery blue blossom surrounded by a band of 'brothers'.  On each end, the outer iris bends toward the center of interest, further calling into play the 'friendship', suggested by the title.  This piece was a joy to paint,as I progressed from one flower to the next."
