Well, you certainly came up with a good one. Love those colors and the focal point of the main flower. Beautiful....

I LOVE this - my only suggestion would be to have a little of the pinkish color that you've used for the lily pads incorporated into the colors of the actual lily. Realize this could just be my monitor. Very nice!

Thank you for your response. The lily does have a little pink however maybe I should add more. I did not want it to blend into the lily pads. I wanted the flower to pop.
