This way

6x6 oil on panel $45
Composition can be funny.  I set up this still life thinking of movement and negative space, then after it is finished I see other things not intended.  Sometimes they are good, sometimes not.  The yellow daisy with the serious stem seems to be leading the rest of the flowers up out of the dark panel.  The diagonal of the stem would normally bug me, but the bright pink flowers pull you back into the painting.  Silly composition.
