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

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

    Tenderly done!

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

    I like the swirls - looks very 'liquid'.
    June.

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.

    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.
