That black Canson adds a perfect note to this painting. Your subject and color choices scream springtime. Mat it and frame it! Nicely done!

Gorgeous! The black paper lends brilliance to teh light and bright colors. Love the glass effect, it's beautiful glass and water as well as full lush blooms. Gorgeous painting, simple and powerful. Frame and hang this! Black mat would be good if you use a mat. You can take a white core black mat and make it look black core with a Pitt pen or any archival black brush tip or marker pen, bigger tips make it easier.

Thanks Karen. That's great advice Robert - thank you for your suggestions. I'll do exactly what you said.

I really like this it has an abstractness to it. While the whole piece is rather flat there is a graphic appeal to me. Every thing works, including the thick background texture.
How large is it?

I am not too sure about the stem sticking out of the glass .... I do like the black showing beneath the color :)
