Basket of Gold

I tried some experimentation on today's painting.  The name of the flower is Basket of Gold so I wanted to make it appear to "glow".  I experimented with colors and tried a much brighter background, not so neutral as I have been using.  The flowers are tiny little sunbursts that grow in clusters.  I wanted to give the sense of individual flowers without losing the freshness of the value groups.  So, here it is...let me know what you think!
