Somehow I really like the mix of the texture with the soft petals. It lends itself well. Composition is also eye appealing.

This is most excellent, Barbara. Wonderful color and tonality. The color on color works great here. And you have created a beautiful texture in Snap Art, I assume. Excellent work!

What a soft and sinuous line this has- graceful and beautiful! I love the soft painted quality, too- right down to the texture of the canvas. This is another lovely work of art.
