Gorgeous colors! I hope everyone opens it to full size to see how really beautiful the reds/oranges are. The small pic is great, but doesn't do it justice.

This reminds me of Manet's gorgeous flower still life paintings! The light is fabulous against the darker blues, and Gwen is right, the enlarged image really shows the brilliant orange and peach strokes. Love this painting!
