My birthday is in March, and I always associate this time of year with irises, because the irises around our house would start to bloom in time for my birthday. There’s no better way to celebrate a (belated) start to Spring than by sharing this beautiful watercolor from Otis Dozier: “Iris (purple) April,” 1937.


This watercolor is in the collection of the Dallas Museum of Art, a gift of The Dozier Foundation; ©Denni Davis Washburn, William Robert Miegel, Jr., and Elizabeth Marie Miegel. More information is here.
