Lin are these Abutilon or are they a different plant entirely? Love the way you captured the wave of the leaf and the orange of the bud/bloom...

I like their papery texture, too. Nice job, Lin.

This is my new favorite Lin painting! I would frame this and hang it. It's gorgeous and has such personality.
