I've been working on this one for a couple weeks in between my more loose contemporaries. It's acrylic on a 36x48 gallery canvas. I think I'm closed to finished with it, but would appreciate your opinion as always. Thanks!:)

This is a lovely painting. The colors are some of my favorites. My only suggestion would be for a bit darker shading around the stamens in the center of the flower.

it is fabulous! the only thing i would suggest is glazing in your darks to force the leaves in the back forward.

This is fantastic. I would add a bit of dark to it though to get it to pop a little more.

Elaine this is beautiful...a wonderful suprise to open an obviously yellow painting to find such a feast of colour.

I agree with the addition of darks and request you photograph it again once you've added them so we can this wonderful painting at it's full potential.
