Dying iris
My irises in the vase are slowly dying, though isn’t it amazing how the petals are becoming translucent. There are more outside in the garden, but I’d rather let them bloom there for longer.

I wasn’t sure what to paint last night until my daughter refused to eat a pear, because it looked too beautiful. And they are gorgeous.

I made a promise to her that I’ll paint a pear in my sketchbook to remind us of its beauty, so she can enjoy their taste before they spoil.
