Oh! I'm oh so happy you enjoy it!  Funny this is, I never knew my father liked my work until last year. Then he flooded me with all kinds of complements, and this was his favorite, and he is an avid gardener, so it makes sense that he would relate so well to her. I gave home this to him (it's almost 2" x 3")  and it hangs prominently in his front hall, where he can see it every day as he comes and goes. Thank you so much for your lovely compliment and for reminding me of his love.

Ah! Then you might like quite a few others of mine too. I’m a great fan of the Pre-Raphaelites too!

I did... I like all of them really, but have chosen just a few that I think are among the best.

That’s very kind of you to say! Thank you. Having just popped over to your favorites gallery, I would agree with your selections. They are my favorites too, and hang in my house where I can glance up at any time to see them.
Cheers

Cool … just feels somewhat unfinished … I don’t know ...

Hmmm...yeah, I can see how you would feel that, it might be because of the big expanse of blue that you have.

Yeah my husband says to leave It alone ... Wish I could crop it off on the left at least, but it's done on canvas board, husband might know how to score it and cut it.

I had wanted more color! But if I collage the background, her dress will not stand out as much ... what a dilemma ... Perhaps it just has to grow on me.

I really love the emptiness there. I think it balances just fine because the swooping of the blue draws your eye right to the woman, as if she were underneath a spotlight. Any other color would throw it off, I think.

Maybe choose to add some complimentary colors, like purple and orange. They'd stand out, but might attract attention to her dress as well. :)
