Louisiana State Wildflower – Louisiana Iris

Swamp Iris

Swamp Irises

Original – SOLD

Available as Fine Art Reproduction

The Magnolia is the state flower; however, the state wildflower is the Louisiana Iris – often seen in the lower Mississippi River valley. Our swamps are full of these gorgeous flowers which grow alongside the huge cypress trees.

I painted this piece with an abundance of forest greens and golden browns, using the yellow-greens to interact playfully with the violet hues of the blooms.
