The title might refer to the first iris of spring, but actually it refers to my first attempt in
colored pencil. Originally, I worked only in pastel, but I liked the layering process of colored pencil so much, it has become my favored medium. The iris came from my garden, and seemed so upright and stately, I had to draw it. It was not easy!

Nature is my favorite subject - either in painting or drawing. My strongest design element is shape - both positive and negative. That is one reason why I love to depict trees in any season, especially bare trees that reach their limbs up to the sky leaving spaces through which the sky peeks through. There is a certain human aspect in a tree shaped by its environment. Variations in line, hue, and value also mark my work. My personality is calm and steady, and it always shows up in my art.
