Lovely colours!
The way the flowers are so very uniformly lined up at the bottom left is bothering me a bit...
By the way, may be a daft question, but where's the sphinx??

i like the way the red relates in the foreground to the other floers on the left
and the yellow stars to the yellow in the foreground flower
you have a lot going off the bottom side of the painting
would it work to have a similar amount of activity going off the upper side
maybe one of the other sides too?
maybe just doing more stars would increase the upper activity

I think the flowers are called sphink's right?

I like this one, only one thing. The stars seems to circle the biggest flower. Was that meant to be?

Don't worry, its gonna be all right....
