I love the blossoms too! You did a really nice job on this, Lin - I love how you know the botanical name for everything, it adds so much. Your bowl is good too.

What an interesting flower. I dont' think I've seen one before. I really like the background too -- so blue and flowing.

This is lovely, Lin. The rendering of the petals are delicate with beautiful colors, nice contrasting background.
Very nice drawing.

This is a very unusual flower - at least to me. I've never seen one. It looks very interesting with the spiny petals.
You did a beautiful painting! I love the vibrant colours you chose!
Lovely!

This is beautiful Lin - I love how you really captured the character of the flower. Your bowl is nice too - I especially like the vase in the background. Transparency is so hard. Great job.
