More or less finished, but I am not really happy with the background... to light? not enough contrast? too much green? Thanks for suggestions!

The simple blurred background works well, presenting a unifying and soothing softness. If you consider a darker background, you may want to look at the photographs by Jim Wickless at http://www.naturepicoftheday.com/photographer/jim_wickless. He handles them well. Nonetheless, you have created an utterly delightful painting. The petals are delectable. What medium did you use? Looks like airbrush. Fine work!

Thank you Jack! I used airbrush for the base color, e.g. light purple for the more pink petals, and then used my favorite tool, the soft pastels, for the rest.
