Purple Passion and Renaissance, By Canadian Artist Kim Blair

The colour purple conjures up numerous images for me... royalty, velvet, magic, opulence ....

The all purple Iris below is from  a photo I took of a spectacular display planted in a gorgeous garden on Ada Boulevard here in Edmonton.

10x8 oil on narrow profile canvas 

This White and Purple Iris is sold but I wanted to post it for everyone to see.  The rich regal colours of this painting seem to be from another era... the 'Renaissance' perhaps?
