well...ya asked for it.....

This is just striking in the detail,
great composition,
good concept,
and darn fine mark-making

I had minor crit:
it it is painted so close to the edges.
(Is this painted on the edges, too?)
might be hard to frame without cropping the effect a little

This has a classical feel to it, New Wave New Age
or whatever term that is used

I really love this

Thank you so much birdhs for your kind observations and critique.
Your concerns are based on my bad photography which has caused distortion in the presentation of my image here.
The image is rather close to the edges=1/2".
There is a dark 1/2" border painted around the front edges of a 1 1/2"" depth gallery rapped canvas that is also painted.

Normally I don't look at botanical work but this drew my eye and impressed me with colours and technique. Smashing work
