Alex it is indeed a beautiful flower and another one for you to look out for, I have read recently they grow in the olive groves of Greece so you may well see them.
As for the painting it seems to loose depth and shadow when the photo is taken so not that pleased with the on screen effect, but thats me.

Wow stunning painting well done and love the effect of the log too. Have you thought to try and photo side ways to see if that gives it more depth.

:o))) Bjs I do this with my 3d cards photo sideways, take a look at your last photo of your painting with you at the desk, its slightly taken from sideways and gives a lot more depth than the straight on photos of your painting.
