Fast, Mme O'Keefe?
This work at 24x30?
In anticipation of the raves to come, I ask the forum to particularly note the treatment of edges.

I was rather arguing that you have created a clinic in how to handle edges.

This is very very very beautiful..and should be listed in the art dictionary how to handle edges for sure. Lucky friend!!!

This is absolutely beautiful. It looks like a satin rose. I hope that's a complement to you. Jan

This month's Artist's Magazine's Brush Up feature by Ian Roberts is an excellent reminder of the importance of good abstract design as the foundation of a good painting.

Roberts could have used this painting as an example of elegant design leading to an exciting outcome.

I'm not usually a fan of oversized flowers, but this one is a wonderful exception.

Excellent.

Many monochromatic paintings leave me cold, but you win me over with this one with your superior composition and the lovely paint solutions. Suggest that subtle paint/brush detail in the darkest darks (background and internal shadow areas) would have provided more integration with the rest of the painting for those areas rather than having them painted flat. A minor point maybe, but could have made a subtle, meaningful difference.

The possitive and helpful comments are reassuring to a self-taught artist, and very much appreciated. Thank you all so much! :)
