Each year in May and June there is a steady stream of gorgeous irises of all colors in the garden. These violet ones are my favorite and never fail to astonish me with their vibrancy and delicacy. This painting is an original watercolor painted on top quality Arches watercolor paper. There is a 1/4" white border all around the edges to allow for matting. This piece will need to be framed to display.

Getting to Know Susan

Before starting a painting, Susan Sjoberg takes her time looking at her chosen subject closely. She moves around it, analyzes its colors and experiments with the possible layout of her composition. “It appears I am getting nothing done at this stage but this invisible work lays the foundation of the piece,” she explains. Many of her works echo the classical style of still life paintings. The challenge in her work comes with capturing the texture of each element within the scene (for instance, a white lace tablecloth). When she’s not making art, Susan enjoys hiking, horseback riding and spending time outdoors.
