Experimenting with simple shapes and bright colors. Maybe too bright? Garish?

Colour is very personal Linda - so some might say garish, others will love it!
Would you say what the medium, size and support are please? It looks quite big!

Sorry, I forgot all that! It's acrylic, 16x20 canvas. I didn't fillout the whole canvas. Not really sure how wide. I gave my daughter the painting, so i can't measure it

I think this works - it's certainly in no way apologetic about colour but it's got good design and draughtsmanship

Looks good to me! The orange color is lovely. :)

Fabulous and bold a use of colour Linda. It can take courage to be so bold. You certainly pulled it off here.

Such a bright happy painting, certainly not garish. I think you achieved what you set out to do.

I think the colors emphasize the exciting composition and texture of the plants.

Thank you all for the kind words! I almost didn't post this because I was so unsure about it. You guys are so encouraging and I do appreciate it.
