Although Gladiolas are not considered to be rare or exotic, they are very beautiful, hardy and varied flowers. Their petal shapes are different from variety to the next, not to mention the brilliant colors which come in almost every color of the rainbow! I love the way the petals peak out from the green stalks and how they are distorted in a vase of water. Up close they appear very sculptural and exciting. I painted them life sized and larger so that they could be appreciated for the special flowers that they are.
