I've realized that the composition on this one is a mess. A couple of years ago, I had a gallery show, and two of my friends brought bouquets of irises to th reception: one white, one purple. I wanted to memorialize the flowers in the blue vase, but they looked kind of lonely, so then I added some daffodiles for color. Then it seemed like a good idea to put in some snapdragons at the top. But it wasn't. They got too close to the upper edge. Today I decided to block most of them out and will try to find a way to redraw the bouquet so it makes more sense.
