Salted Caramel, by Kim Blair


Salted Caramel
(12"x9" oil on canvas)

Yes, this painting is based on a real Iris, hard to believe I know.

The inspiration for this painting is a luscious, beautifully shaped specimen with rust coloured 'falls' (the lower petals) and caramel-pink 'standards' (the petals standing up) growing in a local garden here in Edmonton.

The rare colour of this particular flower stopped me in my tracks... I knew I had to paint it!

This Iris reminded me of some delicious salted caramels I tasted recently and rather than lick my brush like Van Gogh... I decided to look up a recipe for salted caramels to satisfy my sweet tooth.
