I really like the way you've painted these flowers ...... the vase is a little unbalanced, but the painting is lovely!

The flowers are exquisite! If you can go back in and fix the vase, it will be perfect! (You have my sympathy on the proportion issues...I can never seem to get vases even!)

Vase is hard as lea rightly pointed out about the symmetry :)

Beautiful color palette and fresh-looking flowers. Maybe I'm weird, but I think the vase looks ok as is... Maybe its from being a potter and knowing that not all vases are created to be perfectly symmetrical.

I like the loose style.

Gorgeous loose painterly style. I love the way the flowers came out and like the way you scattered a few blooms and petals around the vase. Well laid out still life, good composition. The vase looks like it's somewhat squared at the base with corners rounded, the bottom isn't a smooth ellipse but more like a rounded angle and that makes the asymmetry look solid and interesting. I'm not sure it's that far off from reality. The angle would look different on a squared off object where one edge is off center.
