Messengers of the Gods

In Greek mythology, Iris is the goddess of the rainbow and the messenger of the gods. Today, the iris has come to represent faith, hope and wisdom. 

You could say the inspiration for this piece came as a message from Iris herself. As I worked out the background on these panels and wondered what they would become, the irises emerged from the chaos and texture in front of me- not just on one panel, but on all three. Who am I to turn down a gift from the gods?
