    Hey Smot. I like this piece, it is very abstract. Your pattern work is quite interesting. Over all the image is good... but boring. What i think could bring this image to a vastly greater level is the use of a main subject within your flower. It can be a human or some kind of bug.. whatever the emotion you wish to evoke.

    I believe adding a little to the horizontal canvas size itself would also help your composition. Perhaps doubling the over all width allowing for 50% on the left and right. This way you allow for more for a main subject and background. Right now you have kind of both.

    As stands it is nifty but bland. I believe you can spend some time and make this a fantastic painting. Good luck!

    It's very monochromatic right now. Dashes of cooler colors would go a long way here.

    I really appreciate the color palette in this, but ultimately would like to see you push it even further away from any "jones esque" aesthetic. I love his work, and I think a lot of elements of that nature, like you have here, are very useful tools in painting. For me, in work like that and this, the real magic happens when you begin to fuse traditional painting techniques with the pattern aspects.
