I really admire this piece for the expressionist-like technique and the hues that is presents. The flowers are very easily recognizable, yet they are very whimsical and appear as if they were quickly painting, conveying a lot of emotion from the artist through the technique. The use of repetition in this piece creates a unity, and the colors are calming in a sense through the hue choices (yellows, blues, greens, reds). I like this piece because it is an appreciation of nature since a lot of people do not take the time to stop and appreciate nature for what it is. I also think that this piece pulls together very well through the repetition of the different hues throughout the entire work, which creates a great balance. I also really admire how the warm and the cool hues work against each other, making the piece a bit more interesting. I admire this piece mainly for the technique and the unique depiction of nature.
