This is painted from a reference photo of one of my daughters flowers.

Wow! I haven't seen this much movement in a static image since VanGogh! Very radiant and swirling, almost like a stylized sun. :cool::cool::cool::cool::cool::):):):):):cool::coo l::cool::cool::cool:

Lovely hibiscus painting and pretty colour. Although seems a little heavy for a hibiscus probably due to the sculptured look, but very lovely nonetheless.

There is a sense of motion as if the flower is still enjoying the breeze.

I like the swirls - looks very 'liquid'.

Thank you everyone for you comments :)

It's my daughters favorite flower. It is one of those huge hibiscus that only flowers once a year.

What an energy in Your brushstokes! You reconcile me with floreal paintings genre (I usually find boring) here!
