Ambitious!

Very good job!

Your teeth must still be bad cause you had time to do this too and musta stayed home.

I'd make a comment about it being like pulling teeth, but clearly it's not. :lol:

No such problem to get you painting.

That's fantastic. Quite a profusion of flowers - I like the spindly twisted sticks in the foreground vase. All excellent stuff.

Actually Andy points out an interesting area of the picture.

You have some good lighting behind the dark squiggly plant.

I like how you're isolating the light, making it much more eye catching as a way to get me to look there. You're both raising the intensity of the colors as well as lighting it brighter. And it works really well.

Ordinarily, having a long and narrow vertical foreground over a long and narrow vertical element through thar lattice look into the background could be confusing and could be an off-putting tangle.

But you have found a way to make that difficult passage stay clear and separated in a feat of using pattern recognition devices.

The contrast in the values really makes them both read on separate planes. That could have been a very confusing area of the painting owing to all the activity. But you made it work.

You bent it to your will. You had your way with it, and with the audience.

THATS THE STUFF!!!
