This painting is wonderful, however, it shows non-tropical flower (Lilac) hence can't get a nomination in Tropical Plant Art contest.
Jury comments by Mark Hooten: "...The 2 works by Joan Maier are both superb, exhibiting classic technical technique and application of artistic principles. Really wonderful! WhileIi appreciate the magnificent color interactions of the Butterfly painting, I think the purple lilacs is a work of genuine skill...could have been done by one of the great impressionists!.."
