About Me

My photo
San Jose, California, United States
Some paintings far surpass my expectations and some are scary awful, but it's always fun.

Here's another small painting-I made the mistake of buying several rather small frames on sale, thinking I'd make a few Christmas presents. It's much easier to buy a frame to fit a painting than it is to paint a picture to fit a frame! This particular iris is similar to Edith Wolford-one of my favorites. I couldn't find a photo of Edith, so I used one of a variety with the same colors.

The painting is 5" X 13".


  1. Janice, your gift pieces are just lovely. The flower is very delicate. The trout picture is filled with lovely patterns and shapes.

  2. Thank you, Mary. The rocks are a good way to use up those little bits of paint I had hanging around on old styrofoam plates!
