There was this beautiful iris standing all by itself in the middle of the garden. I got this far before we stopped for lunch.
After lunch we do a little speed painting. We call it that because by the time we get back out there and paint we only have 1/2 to 1 hour left before packing up for the day. Our group meets around 10:00 then breaks for lunch usually around 12 or 12:30. The afternoon always zips by.
The speed painting always ends up being the better of the two paintings for the day.

I walked to the road beside the house and set up to paint. The sky was changing every 5 minutes... growing darker then lighter. then darker again... We are supposed to have tornado warnings later... It was beginning to look like it.
