Ah, a new favorite! The color scheme - the wondrous heat of these sunset colors, offset by touches a cool, pale green. The richly textured background. And the star of the show, that exquisite blossom. The striations of color on the petals is absolutely amazing. Simply gorgeous.

I like how the colors seem to blend together. It has a windswept feeling to it.
