Thank you very much for your public endorsement. I love to paint irises, and my two 
sources so far have been the irises blooming at Schreiner's in 1994 and 1995 and at 
Cooley's in 1996. My husband is the photographer and since when we started photographing 
irises I had no idea I was going to love painting them so much and that I would need to 
know their names I did not keep track of the varieties. 

By carefully looking at the appropriate catalogs I believe that "Let's Dance" comes from 
Schreiner's and it is in the 1994 catalog called "Caramba". This seems to be the one 
that most closely resembles the original photograph (and painting).

Marilyn Harlow, after seing the picture in the postcard, wrote me a note saying that she 
was sending it to its "creator" in case he had not seen it. I do not know who that 
person is, but maybe she will tell you.

Thank you again.

Anastasia Czerniakiewicz
