The leaves make like an open heart. It's beautiful, simple and poetic. Trop fort!

So simple. So beautiful. The texture you created for the center of the flower inspires me and makes me want to try to recreate it - NOW - but I'm off to work....

It's perfect...exactly how I see the flower...you have captured it poetically. In my neighbourhood, all the fire hydrants are painted with cartoon characters by a local artist. It has now fallen to us home owners to refresh the paint on the hydrants. I had decided to paint mine with these flowers. I hope they look as wonderful as this one!
