Lovely composition. Nice color harmony and a great green. Is it golden green? Just bought it and it's a lovely transparent color. I always admire artists who paint flowers that look so natural. It's not easy.

Ciao Jane, very beatiful your paint..I love this flowers (I dont't know the name in english, in italian is ninfee) and last summer I was in Croazia near Montenegro and I see in a little lake a grass of ninfee up to the water. Fantastic!
I think that this flower is poetic and you gave it this atmosphere...
Ciao, a presto, Floriana
