The Iris carries many meanings, such as
faith, hope, wisdom,

This courageous survivor of many years 
gave me a lovely bloom to paint 
after many years of hiding.
It was part of a clump that was here 
when we moved into home
over 30 years ago.
I guess it wasn't finished blooming after all!

Inspiration, Pansies

Inspiration, Pansies

gallery wrapped stretched canvas

Sold

Debra J. Sepos Paintings

I'm always inspired by pretty pansies 
with their cheerful faces in 
overflowing pots or in my garden.
Whether they are in full bloom
or as buds about to burst as 
they hide amongst the leaves.
They beg to inspire!

Pansies have inspired Arts and Literature 
for many years.
Even William Shakespeare's play
A Midsummer Night's Dream
referred to the juice of a pansy
blossom in Act II, Scene I.

Legend says that all pansies were white and 
it was not until they were pierced by cupid's arrow
that they gained the purple and yellow colors.
