irises in boulder

Hi, there!
Eric and I just got back from a lovely trip to Colorado.
There was so much good about it, and the timing was
just right as today marks the end of the school year.
Good to get a nice dose of chilly weather and rain just
as we head into the ninety degrees of summer!
Also, the trip was a nice blend of structured and unstructured
activities, time with friends and with just the two of us,
lots of walks down bricked pathways in downtown
Boulder and Denver, and GREAT FOOD. 
This patch of irises was growing outside the window at 
one of the coffee shops we discovered, and it may be
the first watercolor I've painted in over a year. It felt
good to pull the ol' paintbrush out again. I hope to do so 
more in the months to come! Light-colored watercolors
don't scan well, so I've attempted to color correct; however,
you may get a better feel for it by clicking on the image for a close-up.
