A Portrait of the Iris

I don't mean to get carried away, but doesn't this look like an early American painting?  The shades of color, the framing - I love it all.  This is a deep blue iris (up close it looked like it was made of silk!) displayed in a wine bottle turned vase.  Don't be intiminted with "flower arranging" - this time I used one stalk and one bottle. 

Sometimes a quiet arrangement speaks volumes.
