Beautiful work David and so nice for this young girl! And I am reminded why we fight SO hard to keep this site family friendly and it has become a "fight"...literally.

A beautiful card for little Dannie, my friend of many faces. Your detailed information is wonderful and this Iris is just beautiful. You have select just the right amount of out of boarder work to make it pop right of the screen. A beautiful work and a sweet congratulatory message for a talented and lovely young lady. Happy birthday Danni.
Warmest Regards

An absolute iris beauty David. It must be the peak of blooming season in Tasmania. I like how you composed it, emphasizing the tongue-like appearance of the lower petals. It has a delicate paper-like quality, and of course the colors are very striking. (We have a newly elected President, and I am glad to have taken off from work for two weeks to volunteer for his election campaign. Here's hoping that he'll work fast and effectively to mitigate the global economic crisis.) A happy birthday greetings to Danni. Danilo

Hi David,

Amazing beauty, my eyes opened really wide, perfect.
I already congratulated Danni, so now I can just enjoy your precious birthday card, she must really enjoy getting this card on TL.

Hello David
So appealing work that throws the flower out of screen!
Your PP is well executed and refreshing because it's epurated of smaller surrounding details.
Fine art.
Have a g'day.

Hi David,
This is a really beautiful portrait of a flower here! Its light and delicate nature is captured well and its angled position seems to give a feeling of movement, like a butterfly mid-flight. Beautiful textures and vibrant colours shown here. Very well done.

Hello David,

What sharp and colourful details you have captured of this bearded iris! It is eye-catching, sumptuous!
I think you have another occupation beckoning, David: birthday card design!

Danni will be thrilled with this!
What a lovely memento!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)
