This is Susan's IRIS PAGE:

This watercolor iris background has been painted by
SUSAN ROWE. Always an iris worshipper,
she began painting by demand, on request
from a fellow iris lover. This one person collected
over 25 different iris paintings for her bedroom!

As time went on, irises really became very popular, so it's
easy to find iris themes for many household items: sheets,
wallpaper, shower curtains, greeting cards, towels, etc...

The painting in this background was created on French watercolor
paper, with English paints, using a "wet-in-wet"
technique, and sponges and dry brush to actually remove
some paint, for visual effects. A few irises have salt sprinkled
in the wet paint, creating unique patterns.

Iris means rainbow, and that's usually what I paint in
an iris- a portion of the spectrum, pleasing to the eye.

The three Iris paintings below were
created entirely in the computer
in a painting program, using brushes and airbrushes
and pencil tools, just as in real painting, but
a lot less messy!
