The irises reminded her of Victor and the drunken summer party. Too many Negronis and Victor fled to Gwen’s painting shed, where he painted a small floral masterpiece. We sold it later for a down payment on the cottage. Large Vintage Iris Painting (an early Victor)framed in a wonderful ornate vintage gold frame. Just listed.
