Will:  It is actually taken from a photograph that was taken by me in the New Mexican garden of Maxine Perkins  (hope I spelled that right)....she was the regional President at the time.  I lived in Santa Fe and was the President of the Santa Fe Iris Society for a year or so...Great people!  I had a wonderful time with the group there.  I just happen to be passing though Maxine's neck of he woods, (actually desert), and there it was...It was the most beautiful bloom of 'Thornbird' that I'd seen.  
The drawing was done with pencil.    Paul

Paul, Just curious.  What did you use for a reference, a pic, the actual iris, or from memory?
