"Pontentilla Only Three Goldfingers"

I keep looking at this one. I did it a little while ago... I did it when I was doing a lot of very lonely paintings... like the ones with just one flower or apple. I want to say one object, but the vessel that the flower was in is actually two things, but together as they are, they do become one.
I started reading Greg Albert's book "The Simple Secret to Better Painting: How to Immediately Improve Your Work with One Rule of Composition" a short time after I painting this pontentilla. Well, I feel I have broken some compositional rules and I haven't been able to bring myself to posting this painting.
Today I decided it's okay, there is something to be said in this lonely painting... maybe I was going through my "Artist Lonely Time"... : ) I've thought about adding to this one, but... I want to keep moving ---> forward-
PS: Oh, did I say I also wanted to post this or something, to let you all know that I am still here. Today, one of my fellow artist friends "Susan" told me that the planets are all aligned or out of alignment, in such a way that logic and intuition is all messed up... That may be where I've been lately.
: ) Have a good weekend!!

There's something very lovely about this one I agree - warm lush color and I think the composition is very daring. Maybe it's more aboput solitude than loneliness?
