Description The earliest irises to bloom along the river banks are the golden yellow ones, often called 'flags'. These native wildflowers are especially pretty in the early morning mists from the river when their fresh flowers first open. By late afternoon the flowers are tired and faded so it is the early artist who captures their charm.I painted these from life and set them against a soft abstracted background for a natural composition. This sort of painting is my signature style and depending on how it is framed could be used in a country decor or contemporary room.
