"Welch's Reward" by Carol Thompson

"Welch's Reward is a stunning surprise of dwarf bearded iris type.  It is dainty yet inspiring in it's bold colors.  A whole decorating scheme could be worked around this beauty."

Artist comment:  "The lovely diminutive iris depicted in this watercolor on 140# hot-pressed watercolor paper is my husband's favorite.  The combination of deep purple and greenish yellow is unique.  I chose to portay three of the many blooms, to create a pleasing composition.  The blossoms are arranged in a reverse "C" with the grey-green leaves curving around them to fill in the subject.  I think the blue sky and brown earth, compliment the iris quite beautifully."
