Day 11 - Yellow Iris

The iris is the state flower of Tennessee, where we lived for 19 years before moving to Alabama, so they are special to me.  I found this one outside of Lowe Mill in Huntsville, AL this spring.  Finally got to paint it for the challenge, but it was more difficult to get the rose and blue variations in the yellow than I anticipated!
