Flowers are not my strength, but try them just the same. I still have some tweaking to do on this.

Love the compostition, minibrush. Liking the intesity of the color also. Sometimes doing these minis I feel like I could tweak and tweak and tweak. ;)

Wow, this is beautiful :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
If it were mine, I wouldn't be tweaking it anywhere.

Minibrush, I'd never know that flowers were not your strong suit. ;) This is beautiful, and it looks done to me. What else will you do to it?

It looks done to me, too. I love the colors in this one :)

You should be well pleased with this one!

:o Well, everyone, I'm blushing. I really didn't think this "clicked", and I usually struggle with flowers. But I am taking everyone's word, and the only thing I did to it was frame it, name it, and send it to a show today, before I could change my mind and tweak it. It is "Sunburst".
Thank you so much everyone, I think I just got a little more confidence to do flowers.

Beautiful work, Minibrush :clap: ! The frame works very well with the painting. More flowers please. :D

Its wonderful, glad you stopped tweaking. Iris are impossible for me to do, last time I tried it was a disaster. Lori

Sonia, Jaef, paintsplatter, Lori, Dave, Thanks so much. I guess I will... do more flowers that is. I honestly don't even have that much experience with flowers, I find them very frustrating. This I believe is a happy accident, but thanks to this accident I am encouraged (thank you all) to try something relatively new to me.
Thanks ALL again,
