Beautiful roses for day 26 of the challenge (only 4 more days to go)

I am not sure about this painting, it doesn't quite work for me, although the roses have some lovely impasto passages on this. I wonder if the background is just to fussy. I may go back into it and calm it down giving it a more even colour - or maybe there is just too much in this for a small painting?

Let me know what you think about this one.

I am currently preparing my first Newsletter which will go out at the end of this month. To celebrate this, I am holding a raffle for the sunflower miniature treasure painting. All you have to do is subscribe to my newsletters which I plan to isuue once every month - see the side bar for the subscription box. The draw will be held on the 7th February and the winner announced on the 8th.
