"Pansies, Iris, and Petunia" Oil on 6x8 canvas panel


I bought this pretty coffee cup in the gift shop of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  It has van Gogh's Irises on it.  (the museum has the same painting in it's collection)  It inspired me to do a painting with the same colors, all blues and violets, white, green, and a touch of yellow.


  1. Even before I read your post, I was drawn to the palette colors of this piece.
    No wonder! That blue petunia is gorgeous!

  2. Very lovely. It's a pleasure to follow your blog.
