CIVIC GARDEN CENTER - BITS AND PIECES 2

I added some more color to the background and brought in some blues and grays to define the "x"s.  Obviously, I added more to the leaves and brought green into the window, as well as the black inside the window.

 Finally, I removed the misket and added dimension to the flowerets, put some more darks in the window area and added some white highlights.
I think this represents some of the elements of the Civic Garden Center - so I'm calling this one FINISHED!

Just one word sums it all up - GORGEOUS! I love the addition of the one little floret bottom right - clever you Debs.

I adore the "design element" in this painting.
Kind of a Zentangle approach! Go Deb!
Love how the design weaves through the painting!
Lovely palette of colors too!

Vicki and Ginny - I liked the idea of creating the border using the pagoda design - glad you like it too. Didn't know it was "zentangle-y" - thanks Ginny!
Joan, glad you think I'm clever!
Thanks Kimberly!
