All about flowers

The iris in my garden are finished for the season but those in the Killington Arts Guild Gallery show "Spring into Summer" continue to bloom brightly. Sally Curtis's Iris (photo on canvas) in blue and yellow is a fine example. Nancy Pisano has two striking pieces, Daffodil Mosaic (glass and grout) and Spring Tree (plexiglass and glass painting) both mounted so the light shines through.
Other impressive works include Killington Dream (plein air oil) has pastel colored flowers with skiing trails - probably the view from artist Jill Dye's Killington Lodge; Vermont Porch Petunia (watercolor), flowers spilling out of their pots by Alice Sciore; delicate White Petunias in a bowl (oil) by Dawn Kranz; Sherburne Postcard #3 of Old River Road (photo montage) lilacs blooming in May with poetry by Patsy Zedar and Betty Little; Red Geraniums (watercolor) by Maurie Harrington; Meadow Lights (mixed media) a valley brimming with yellow and orange flowers by Mary Fran Lloyd and more flowers down the stairway.
