Neither diamond in the rough nor turkey in the straw, Ms. Coops.

It is a beautiful gem that sits there glistening. :):):)

Love the brushwork and the composition has an Asian feel, although painted like a post impressionist a little, thus giving it a turn of the last century continental feel, from Van Gogh to Klimt's decorative flavor somewhat. All the painterly ones who were inspired by the sudden discovery of Japanese prints.

This is an awesome painting Katie, looks like a masterpiece to be mounted on the wall of an office :)

Wow, these flowers really pop! Good job. I would however add some leaves or some features to the flower region to make it blend better with th BG. I say that because it seems to me like the BG as it is takes some of the focus away from the flowers or rather makes the flowers appear like they do not blend so well. Or you could make the BG less busy and that would work too. I really like your background though and so I would keep it as is.
