Flowers for me stand for loved ones. Many times they are of those who have crossed over. Seeing their flowers awakens memories. In that I find painting flowers a way to keep memories alive. This Iris is a reminder of my Pop, my step-dad, who raised me as his own. We grew and showed Iris in shows in Sothern California when I was growing up. It was something we loved doing together.
