Delightful Dahlia

What attracted me to this image, was the amazing curving lines of the Dahlias' petals, the delicate dance of shapes, colours and forms. Have you ever seen a Dahlia quite like 'Delightful Dahlia' before?

The original picture was a very pale pink, so I decided to use a bit of artistic licence and play with it in photoshop before I painted it.  

This painting would look wonderful on a white wall or spectacular on a deep eggplant one.
