New Work in Paint on Canvas

Lately I've been spending quite a bit of time with my paints and sorely neglecting my sewing machine. I go through weird episodes like this from time to time and I think it may be due to the fact that when I finally come back to the machine I do so with new eyes and a fresh vision for what I want to accomplish. Or maybe it's not that at all but just because I get bored and want to play around with something new. One way or the other I'm still having fun.
Last week when I was in the city visiting my Mom I stopped by Currys art supply store and picked up some juicy M. Graham Paints. I love M. Graham and Golden the most. I picked up this gorgeous Quinacridone Magenta which is extremely transparent and have begun a small 6"x6" still life of a flower. I will post it here when it is completed.
The above piece is not yet done. I still have a bit of tweaking to do but am pleased with the colour as well as the composition so far. As usual the name for the piece is not coming to me.......any suggestions from anyone?

No suggestions for a title, Melody - but I love it. The painting has a lot of depth.

I think those mini diversions are good for us now and again. Fresh is good.
