"Betty's Iris" is my latest work. It's a commission of sorts that my mother-in-law requested for my husband's Grandmother's birthday. Last year she moved from her home of 60+ years in Southern Illinois into an assisted living apartment in Baton Rouge, LA. She is now only 5 minutes from my in-laws and she loves the social part of where she lives now. She has adjusted well and flourished in her new environment. The downside to assisted living is that she no longer has her gardens, however an upside to my mother-in-law who had become chief gardner even though she lived 8 hours away. Irises are her favorite flower and this very iris is from a photo of her iris that I took a few years ago. I'm so happy a little of her old garden will now be in her new apartment.
