Hi Pat - Great work here. I love the colors, too. I see you used some knife. I was thinking that if you used the first knife setting on small, you could further refine your edges. I took the liberty of doing a bit for examples. Also, the middle knife set soft at about 25% is a great way to "pull" grasses, etc (Also shown on left side. Just some thoughts, you don't need to do anything, really.

The flower has beautiful background and the flower so nicely done, stands out nicely of its surroundings...very pretty Pat. ;)

Absolutely marvellous and a flower I like very much!
I also painted it from a reference quite a lot of time ago in my very rare floreal paintings.
