It's a beautiful painting - sort of poetic!!!
It has an abstract quality to me.

I look forward to seeing more of your paintings.

What a wonderful rose. You really did a magnificant job blending your colors, and the background is really nice. It doesn't distract from the subject at all.
I look forward to seeing more of your work.

Hi Andy,
Terrific effort for your first acrylic, very impressive indeed. Good colour and depth, unusual with the offset composition but very effective. Well done.

I too began with watercolors, then went to acrylics, but I can't say my first effort in acrylics was this polished. Watch out . . . acrylics are addictive! Congrat's on selling it! :)

I think a lot of watercolorists end up here.

Nice painting. I can see why you sold it
