Really like your use of paint here, and it does have a flavour of Georgia O'Keefe I think. Nice one.

Beautiful work - The composition is hugely successful and the soft rendering of the petals works very well.

Love the close up I painted a version similar to this but didn't post it. I got carried away with color,as I often do. Your colors a soft and clean.

I love how you've controlled the values and colors here - I tried but just couldn't get those whites and light pinks sorted out. Nicely done.
