Irises and Spring

r.atencio-orange-yellow-iris
Even though I'm flying away tomorrow, Tuesday is usually blog time. I could say that habits die hard. That'd be partly true, but the other part is that I just finished an iris card series and I like it so much that I couldn't wait to share it with you.

A little background is in order. Many blogs ago, I mentioned that I was creating a new website. I would keep r-atencio.com to display work for art galleries. I requested your help to name a new site where art, ceramics, and many other items would be available for purchase. The majority of you voted for "r-atencio-annex.com" and now construction is under way.

The choice was made for the note cards to be first pages because a lot of folks didn't really like going through Etsy. This system will simplify ordering by quite a bit.

If you click on "My Card Shop" at the upper right on this page ( below "Favorite Links"), you'll see the first pages of the new site including all 6 of the "Spring Iris"r-atencio-pink-iris series. I am very pleased with how the irises look. It was a windy day and I think it gave the irises a certain feel of movement.

(Should you be interested in ordering any card series for yourself or your Mom for Mother's Day, shipping is scheduled for April 30th.)

Future blogs will be journals of my trip to Athens and Naxos. In the meantime, please enjoy the iris.... and Happy Spring!

  1. I was just checking my email and there you were - still in town. Two things: I LOVE the IRISES. They are beautiful and you are very talented. The other thing is a big fat Bon Voyage. I'll start watching for your journals. Chaz.
