Lost in the petals again..
Actually I haven't been altogether happy with this painting. It's the spacial concept that is lacking...while the bowl and the roses are adeptly painted, the background and visual plane seem too ambiguous. Couldn't quite get the sense of place with this. Seems to work more as design...rather than any sense of realism. But I do love the flowers. We are our own worst critics....yes??
