Here are some of the "tataranietos" or great great grandchildren of the first irises Don Manuel gave me years ago. I think it was exactly 30 years ago. Wow. It's been a lifetime, hasn't it? Don't they look beautiful?

What a master artist he is. These days I am alternating between painting the tropicals and learning to master the brush to introduce light and shadow in my paintings: easier said than done, believe me. I liked the way the vase came out.
