Very pretty, I love your flame, though I think I'd raise it a bit so the wick showed a bit above the candle.

Jean, the arrangement is beautiful. I think the candle would benefit from some more definition. As it is right now, it can be mistaken for a fruit since the sides are not straight (at least that was my impression). Also, subtle flames are rounded at the bottom. The way it is now, in my opinion, is too strong (like a torch rather than a flame.) The leaves on the side should also be more lit because of the direct light form the flame.

Jean I think it is beautiful. I also can see where the artist's concept may be lost on others. If I was a short little kid looking up at this, I would be willing to bet the shape of the flame would be wide and not visable at the base to see the wic or the narrowing of the flame base. And I am a FIRM believer in the fact that there may be multiple light sources. Only the artist "themself" will recognise that secondary light that is lost on others. So in "light" :rolleyes: of that, I think it is beautiful! Happy holidays honey!
Hugs
