Iris, takes its name from the Greek word for a rainbow, which is also the name for the Greek goddess of the rainbow, Iris.
Must you know that yours will be the “better” picture before you pick up the brush and paint? Can it not simply be another picture? Another expression of beauty? Must a rose be “better” than an iris in order to justify it’s existence? I tell you this: you are all flowers in the Garden of the Gods.
Neale Donald Walsch
