A BIG THANK YOU TO LISA OVER AT http://all-the-wright-stuff.blogspot.com/!
She suggested I add patterns to the flowers and mentioned that she seemed to be showered with flowers.
Oh that got the creative juices flowing and back to the drawing board I went!
I patterned the leaves which instantly made them seem more like part of the picture. I love how they turned out.
Then I used a gold pen to add in some raindrops and vertical lines. I found a single hole punch and punched out little dots from various colors of cardstock and went to town.
This now seems like a really 'finished' piece and I have Lisa to thank for her wonderful suggestions.
I have to say again how much I appreciate all of your feedback on my art! I am exploring so many new sides of me artistically, and some major inspiration comes from all of you! Thanks so much!
Happy Sunday Sketches All!

Before I posted the final version I had written:
I've been working on this piece for a couple of weeks off and on - I love how vibrant she is! The flowers I added at the last minute and I am still pondering whether or not I like them....
Love to hear your feedback!
Hope you are all having a relaxing wonderful weekend. I'm off to an art festival with the idea of scoping things out for possibly participating next year...Hmmmmm!
Smiles to you all and Happy Sunday.
